Patient-matched ear scaffolds from the 3D printer
How can you grow patients replica ears, for example, for burn victims? Delft University of Technology and VU University Medical Centre are collaborating on developing replica cartilage structures using 3D modelling and 3D printing. These structures will ultimately be used as an implant for ear recon - struction surgery.
