Scientists are mastering the 3D printing heart to save lives of children

The development of 3D printers opened to doctors many opportunities. Instead of plastic and metal experts have learned to use the cellular material to create a structured bodies. European doctors reported the first success in the three-dimensional printing components of heart. In the future technology will save the lives of children with developmental disabilities.

Three-dimensional printing makes it possible to cause the cellular material layer by layer. Now this print has been successfully applied in orthopedics, surgery, for the manufacture of hearing AIDS.

The new generation scanners have helped scientists to recreate an accurate picture of the baby's heart. In the future, scientists plan to create parts and even whole heart. In the first such development will help children with congenital malformations of the cardiovascular system.
