The future trend of plastic surgery: noninvasive in vivo 3D bioprinting
Speaking of new technologies: on June 3, 2020, the scientists of Sichuan University, published research on noninvasive in vivo 3D bioprinting, where they show that they managed to create a small human ear in the mouse’ tissue without the surgery.
The experimental part of the process was to overcome the opacity of the skin for ordinary visible light. With the help of this light 3D printer is able to create anything and interrupt the dependence of the light was the main goal of the scientists.
It was the infrared radiation that manages to get through the skin of the mouse and the ultraviolet needed for the printing was received under the tissue. Nanoparticles which were used for the ear creation were capable of storing and re-emitting electromagnetic energy. Thanks to recently published work of Russian researchers from the Institute of Crystallography of the Russian Academy of Sciences who explained how the radiation can be used in 3D printing.
It was mined using special nanoparticles capable of storing and re-emitting electromagnetic energy. This part of the experiment was made possible thanks to the recently published technology of Russian researchers from the Institute of Crystallography of the Russian Academy of Sciences, who showed how exactly the conversion of radiation on nanoparticles can be effectively applied for three-dimensional printing.
We are waiting for the implementation of such amazing technology, especially in the area of plastic surgery.
