3d3D Printed Bioimplants Repaired Spinal Cords and Restored Motor Function

No Comments
3D printed implants are soft bridges that guide new nerve cells to grow across a tear or break in an injured spinal cord and restored movement. The work has so far shown promise in rats with severe spinal cord injury. …
