Need a new skull or mandible? 3d print it! – Presented by Jules Poukens, Cranio-maxillofacial Surgeon, Zuyderland Medical Center / The Netherlands, Lecturer-Researcher, University Hasselt and Leuven, Belgium, at the 3D Medical Conference 2019.

Patients in the cranio-maxillofacial clinic often present with serious, complex, and potentially life- threatening or life-limiting medical conditions (e.g. tumor, trauma, aggressive osteomyelitis). Available treatments may not always give satisfactory results for patients and doctors. Therefore, complex problems ask for new solutions.

An emerging technique in the medical field is Computer Aided Design (CAD) , Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) by 3D printing. For successful implementation of CAD-CAM technology in the clinical practice doctors, dentists and engineers need to work together and share their expertise.

This intense cooperation leads to 3D printing of custom patient specific implants. 3D printed implants are used for the treatment of skull defects, temporo-mandibular joint replacement and world’s first 3D printed entire mandible replacement implant.

Clinical cases will be highlighted. Continue reading “Need a new skull or mandible? 3d print it! – Presented by Jules Poukens, University Hasselt & Leuven”

Designing biomaterials for tissue regeneration – Presented by Sandra Camarero-Espinosa, MERLN

Designing biomaterials for tissue regeneration – Presented by Sandra Camarero-Espinosa, MERLN Institute for Technology Inspired Regenerative Medicine, at the 3D Medical Conference, on January 30-31, 2019, MECC Maastricht, The Netherlands

On the past decades materials sciences have experienced a boom with increasing knowledge being generated on nanotechnology and on the control and design of materials properties. Despite the great advances in the field and the exploitation of this knowledge in applications such as electronics, optics, photonics and drug delivery systems, little has been translated into tissue engineering (TE) applications.

Reactive Inkjet Printing of Functional Silk Micro-motors – Presented by David Alexander Gregory, The University of Sheffield

Reactive Inkjet Printing of Functional Silk Micro-motors – Presented by David Alexander Gregory, The University of Sheffield, at the 3D Medical Conference, on January 30-31, 2019, MECC Maastricht, The Netherlands

At present many small-scale stirring methods require external actuation, which can be cumbersome. Stirring small volumes of solutions can for example reduce immunoassay readout time. Here, we demonstrate the use of reactive inkjet printing to produce autonomously rotating biocompatible silk-based micro-stirrers capable of enhancing fluid mixing. Two types of propulsion mechanisms are discussed producing rotary motion. Either by release of a surface-active agent resulting in Marangoni effect driven motion, or by catalytically powered bubble propulsion. Marangoni driven devices do not require any additional chemicals to aid propulsion, whereas catalytically powered devices are powered by the decomposition of substrate molecules into the bulk solution. The surface tension driven motors also display great sensitivity to fluid properties and thus the devices show great potential for sensing applications, such as water pollution sensors.

3DPrint2Fiber – Combining the strength of carbon fibre with the versatility of 3D printing – Presented by Benjamin Els, Mecuris, at the 3D Medical Conference, on January 30-31, 2019, MECC Maastricht, The Netherlands

Current methods of manufacturing custom ankle foot orthotics can be a time and labor intensive process. This project aims to create a solution for difficulties experienced within the current AFO creation process, while leaving the customisation within the experienced hands of orthopaedic technicians. To achieve this, Mecuris along with its various partners, are developing a process which combines the versatility of 3D scanning and – printing with the superior material properties of carbon fiber – a combined process which aims to provide orthotic technicians with superior products and less effort involved in manufacturing.

Announcement by Servier and Poietis of scientific partnership in 4D bioprinting of liver tissues

Paris and Pessac, France – 19 September 2018 – Servier, an independent international pharmaceutical company, and Poietis, a leader in the production of living bioprinted tissues, have announced a scientific partnership to use Poietis’s 4D bioprinting technology for the development and production of liver tissues.

This partnership seeks to improve the detection of drug-induced liver lesions as early as the preclinical trial phase. Such lesions are rare1 but can have serious consequences for patients. This hepatotoxic2 potential is poorly detected by current preclinical models. Beyond animal models, various models based on human cell cultures are available, but most lack longevity and complexity, which limits their usefulness in toxicology. Poietis’s 4D bioprinting technology has emerged as an innovative technology capable of helping to overcome these limitations.
