3D Printed Organ Models with Physical Properties of Tissue and Integrated Sensors.

Adv Mater Technol 2018 03 6;3(3). Epub 2017 Dec 6.

Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, Minnesota 55455, United States.

The design and development of novel methodologies and customized materials to fabricate patient-specific 3D printed organ models with integrated sensing capabilities could yield advances in smart surgical aids for preoperative planning and rehearsal. Here, we demonstrate 3D printed prostate models with physical properties of tissue and integrated soft electronic sensors using custom-formulated polymeric inks. The models show high quantitative fidelity in static and dynamic mechanical properties, optical characteristics, and anatomical geometries to patient tissues and organs. Read More

A Tailorable In-Situ Light-Activated Biodegradable Vascular Scaffold.

Adv Mater Technol 2017 Apr 20;2(4). Epub 2017 Feb 20.

Simpson Querrey Institute for BioNanotechnology, Northwestern University, Chicago Illinois.

Biodegradable vascular scaffolds (BVS) are novel treatments for obstructive atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease that have been developed to overcome the limitations of traditional metallic drug-eluting stents (DES). The mechanical properties of bioabsorbable polymers used for the production of novel BVS are a key consideration for the clinical translation of this emerging technology. Herein, we describe the engineering of an light-activated vascular scaffold (ILVS) comprised of a biodegradable citric acid-based elastomeric polymer, referred to as methacrylated poly-diol citrate (mPDC), and a diazeniumdiolate chitosan nitric oxide donor (chitoNO).
