Scientists in Israel unveiled a 3D print of a heart with human tissue and vessels

Scientists in Israel unveiled a 3D print of a heart with human tissue and vessels 

Scientists in Israel unveiled a 3D print of a heart with human tissue and vessels on April 15, calling it a first and a “major medical breakthrough” that advances possibilities for transplants. Tel Aviv University’s Tal Dvir led the project.

The heart marked the first time anyone has successfully engineered and printed an entire heart replete with cells, blood vessels, ventricles and chambers.

People have managed to 3D-print the structure of a heart in the past, but not with cells or with blood vessels. The fully-working 3D-printed hearts can become available for transplant into patients.
