3D bioprinting of tissues will help hasten bone fracture healing

Scientists are developing 3D-printed artificial tissues that may help heal bone and cartilage typically damaged in sports-related injuries.

The researchers at Rice University in the US engineered scaffolds that replicate the physical characteristics of osteochondral tissue — hard bone beneath a compressible layer of cartilage that appears as the smooth surface on the ends of long bones.
