Current updates of 3D Printing in Medical Health Care - Bio –Printing, Prosthesis, Pharmacy, Medical Implants and equipment’s.

To be decided

Medical applications or 3D printing is expanding rapidly and it is expected to revolutionize health care. Medical uses for 3D printing, both actual and potential, can be organized into several broad categories, including: tissue and organ fabrication; creation of customized prosthetics, implants, and anatomical models; and pharmaceutical research regarding drug dosage forms, delivery, and discovery. The application of 3D printing in medicine can provide many benefits, including: the customization and personalization of medical products, drugs, and equipment; cost-effectiveness; increased productivity; the democratization of design and manufacturing; and enhanced collaboration. However, despite recent significant and exciting medical advances involving 3D printing, notable scientific and regulatory challenges remain and the most transformative applications for this technology will need time to evolve.

And Trinity Media & Marketing Solutions as a media company have seen the opportunity to create a platform titled – 3D Printing World Think Board – a roundtable meeting with Thinkers, initiators and experts to discuss the technology for learning and networking. We would also like to take the process ahead with deliberation and dissemination through our online media for greater awareness.

3D bio printing is the process where cell pattern is created in a very confined space using 3D Printing technologies, here cell function and viability are preserved within the printed construct. This is a layer-by-layer method to create tissue-like structures that are later used in medical and tissue engineering fields. Bioprinting covers a broad range of materials. Currently, bioprinting can be used to print tissues and organs to help research drugs and pills. In addition, 3D bioprinting has begun to incorporate the printing of scaffolds. These scaffolds can be used to regenerate joints and ligaments. There are patent related to this technology filed and research ongoing as a process with stages - Pre-Bio printing,

Pre-bio printing is the process of creating a model that the printer will create with the choice of the materials that will be used. The first thing is a biopsy of the organ. The common technologies used for bioprinting are computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). In order to print with a layer-by-layer approach, tomographic reconstruction is done on the images. The 2D images are then sent to the printer to be made. Once the image is created, certain cells are isolated and multiplied. These cells are then mixed with a special liquefied material that provides oxygen and other nutrients to keep them alive. In some processes, the cells are encapsulated in cellular spheroids 500μm in diameter. This aggregation of cells does not require a scaffold, and are required for placing in the tubular-like tissue fusion for processes such as extrusion.

Bio printing is the next step, the liquid mixture of cells and nutrients are placed in a printer cartridge and structured using the patients' medical scans. When a bioprinted pre-tissue is transferred to an incubator, this cell-based pre-tissue matures into a tissue. 3D bioprinting for fabricating biological constructs typically involves dispensing cells onto a biocompatible scaffold using a successive layer-by-layer approach to generate tissue-like three-dimensional structures. Artificial organs such as livers and kidneys made by 3D bioprinting have been shown to lack crucial elements that affect the body such as working blood vessels, tubules for collecting urine, and the growth of billions of cells required for these organs. Without these components the body has no way to get the essential nutrients and oxygen deep within their interiors. Given that every tissue in the body is naturally compartmentalized of different cell types, many technologies for printing these cells vary in their ability to ensure stability and viability of the cells during the manufacturing process. Some of the methods that are used for 3D bioprinting of cells are photolithography, magnetic bioprinting, stereolithography and direct cell extrusion.

Trinity Media & Marketing Solutions believes that the 3D Printing will change the dynamics of Medical & Heath Care sector. And so is our effort to get the expert’s share their knowledge and wisdom through this platform.

Research work of Dr. A.M.Kuthe is focused in the area Rapid Prototyping (RP). Using CAD as base and specialised techniques of RP, the Dr. A.M.Kuthe dedicated his efforts in harnessing this technology for practical use. The capabilities of RP equipment were extensively exploited to make custom build human body parts that were implanted in human bodies by surgeons in several complicated medical cases including some cases of cancer. The technology was also effectively used in engineering industry to develop zero defect pattern making and casting. Dr. A.M.Kuthe has earned patent for the niche work undertaken by him. His contribution to international and national journals, presentation of papers at international conferences and authoring of a book demonstrate his deep study as well as authority on the subject. Creation of a well equipped CAD-CAM centre at VNIT speaks volumes of his passion for raising the bar of academic standards. His self motivation for introduction of industry oriented courses, guidance to Ph D and M Tech students as well as untiring efforts in creating awareness and building capacity for large scale adoption of Rapid Prototyping using CAD is a testimony of his work in this area.
