Major 3D Printed Organ Breakthrough: Vascular Networks Achieved

Bio-printing promises to change the way the medical community deals with organ failure. Every year hundreds of thousands of people die because they could not receive an organ transplant soon enough. The demand for organs-1donor organs far exceeds the supply, leaving helpless patients in a state that no one should have to be left in… waiting to live.

The story is too old to be commented.

Indeed, my mother's kidneys failed about 2 years ago. I'm not sure if I'll see a headline or she'll get a phone call first. It'll be a long wait either way.

this should be low cost and helping everyone but i doubt it, well i can understand the medic doing the surgery i mean the surgery price but not the price of the artificial organ.

Random thought: The price of harvested black market organs will drop drastically if/when this is achieved.

I never imagined that 3D printing would be taken to this level. Seems so si-fi
