Researchers develop method to 3D-print lifelike heart valve models


Team Udayavani, Aug 30, 2020, 4:13 PM IST

Researchers have developed a process for multi-material 3D printing of lifelike models of heart’s aortic valve and the surrounding structures

The research is published in Science Advances, a peer-reviewed scientific journal published by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).

These organ models, which include 3D-printed soft sensor arrays integrated into the structure, are fabricated using specialized inks and a customized 3D printing process.

This organ model was specifically designed to help doctors prepare for a procedure called a Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) in which a new valve is placed inside the patient’s native aortic valve.
