On Monday, Scientist in Israel unveiled a 3D print of a heart with human tissues and vessels. It is to be called first and a major medical breakthrough that advances the possibilities for heart transplants.
The heart, about the size of a rabbit’s, market ” the first time anyone anywhere has successfully engineered and printed an entire heart replete with cells, blood vessels, ventricles and chambers,” said Tel Aviv University Tal Dvir.
“People have managed to 3D-print the structure of a heart in the past, but not with cells or with blood vessels,” he said.
“Maybe, in 10 years, there will be organ printers in the finest hospitals around the world, and these procedures will be conducted routinely,” he said.
