3D printed blood vessels act like natural ones [video]


The technological evolution in medicine has already created an artificial heart, and now blood vessels can act and function like the natural human body blood vessels.


The Lawrence Livermore laboratory researchers have initially printed a 3D cell structure from organic materials, have augmented it with bio ink and with other materials friendly to for the human body. The next step is reserved for time, the only one that makes this artificial blood vessels to become more realistic.
