First ever opposite lung, living donor lung transplant takes place thanks to 3-D printing
From May 22:
We all are aware that 3-D printing has been helping advance several different types of surgeries. It's doing this in two ways; first by giving surgeons the option of a variety of new types of 3-D printed implants, and second by allowing surgeons to print replica organs for a better understanding of the procedures that they are about to initiate. A ground breaking new surgery was performed at Kyoto University Hospital in Japan. It was the world's first ever living donor lung transplant in which the opposite lung of the donor was implanted into the recipient.
