Resorbable implants: the future of 3D printing?

Dear Sir or Madam,

The 3D printing of implants is researched around the world, and sometimes already used in treatment. Now the technology is increasingly becoming the focus of regenerative medicine. The printed implants are to be resorbed by the body, while new tissue grows in their place. Our November special is about this exciting topic. Read more!

I wish you a good start to the weekend!

PS: Making implants particularly long-term – that is the goal of twelve Fraunhofer Institutes. How would they like to realize this? Find out more in our current interview.

Generative manufacturing processes such as 3D printing have been inspiring both the technology industry and medical technology for years. 3D printing is particularly interesting for the production of individual patient implants. In this context, the focus is increasingly on more than just massive implants such as endoprostheses or dentures.

An implant shows signs of aging and fatigue after a certain amount of time inside the body. It must be replaced since its functionality can no longer be guaranteed. Unfortunately, the inevitable surgery is a major physical as well as mental strain for patients. Now twelve Fraunhofer Institutes have addressed this issue; among them is the Fraunhofer FEP with its knowledge in surface refinement.
