New 3D Printing Technique Makes Custom Implants Mimicking Real Bone Tissue

The articular cartilage, which forms the outer, smooth surface of the ends of bones, is often damaged during injuries. These osteochondral injuries are exceedingly common in athletes, often leading to an unexpected end of a sports career.

Researchers at Rice University have now developed a way to 3D print scaffolds on top of which bone and osteoc (Read more...)
