Israeli Scientists Create 3D Printed Heart

Researchers in Israel introduced a 3D print of a heart containing human tissue and vessels on Monday, calling it an initial and a “huge health care advancement” that furthers chances for heart transplants.

The heart has been branded “the first opportunity anybody has successfully created and printed a whole heart packed with cells, blood vessels, ventricles and chambers,” said Tel Aviv University’s Tal Dvir, who led the job.

“People have managed to 3D-print the structure of a heart earlier, however, never with cells or with blood vessels,” he said.

The researchers stated lots of hurdles continue even before fully-working 3D-printed hearts may become accessible for implant into sick people.
