The more individually an implant can be manufactured, the better it fits. This has been known for a long time with dental bridges, for example, which is why they are manufactured individually. However, with other implants, such as endoprostheses, this is handled differently. They usually come in different sizes, but cannot be cut to size individually. This is supposed to change thanks to 3D printing. Find out more here in the Trend Topic and at COMPAMED 2019!

3D printing and bioprinting: regenerative medicine from the nozzle
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. Research is increasingly looking at printed implants that are absorbed by the body while new tissue is being created in their place. Find out what role 3D printing and bioprinting play in this process in our current Special.
Finding a handful of cancer cells hiding among billions of blood cells in a patient sample can be like finding a needle in a haystack. In a new approach enabled by 3D-printed cell traps, researchers are removing the hay to expose the cancer cells.
