3D-printed things are being expanded to all the sectors day by day. Doctors as well as hospitals have started using 3D-printed things for treatment. Now it's been saying that neurosurgeons of the world may use 3D-printed brain replicas to save children in the near future.
In order to balance the heart-beat of an imbalanced heart patient, we use pacemaker. Every artificial pacemaker comes with batteries. As the pacemaker is artificial, so it can't run without batteries. But now, scientists have developed a new pacemaker that doesn't need batteries and powers the patient's heart.
Since the 3D printing things have shown a great success in most of the cases, doctors as well as hospitals have already inclined to use this technology in with patients. Lately, we have come to know that Beijing Hospital has done the world's first 3D printed vertebra surgery to a 12-year-old boy in China.
3D printed materials are being increasingly used in fields such as manufacturing, technology and modelling. A 3D printed skull was recently implanted in a woman's brain, resolving a critical medical condition.
Stroke has led many people to become paralyzed. But this time, a different scenario occurred. Lately, stroke led a female school teacher, identified as M.P., losing her ability to read, but interestingly, she could write!
Typically, when we start using a vaccine for any given diseases at a large scale, and on regular intervals, the bacteria or virus causing that diseases evolves to counter this. Same is happening now with the bacteria which causes whooping cough.
Carmat's artifical heart has been around for a while, having won legal health approval in a number of countries. Now, the first bioprosthetic heart from the company has been implanted in a human patient for the first time ever.
The search for a way of reversing the effects of aging has been the holy grail of medical science. Scientists in US have now made a huge victory to that end, successfully reversing the effects of muscular aging in mice.
Many people believe that robotic surgeries are better than conventional surgeries, but a new research has found that robotic surgery isn't any better than conventional approaches, rather it is a way of doing the surgeries in an expensive way.
It has long been believed that DNA is responsible for telling the cells how to make proteins. But lately a group of international scientists believes that they have identified a second DNA code, one that instructs cells on how genes are controlled.
