Researchers have developed a new way to treat the early pathway of tissue repair at the site of injury using a micro-robot..
Endoscopy of Gastric Ulcer
Damage to the stomach walls is a common problem, usually requiring medication or surgery. However, a team of scientists from Tsinghua University have proposed an internal healing technique through bioprinting..
The team has developed a micro-robot that enters the body through an endoscope and covers with a layer of live cultured cells, previously grown in the laboratory, restoring damaged tissues of the stomach wall..
Tests have shown that after bioprinting, cells retain vital signs and continue to divide steadily.., here on high biological functionality of the printed fabric. The results of the study confirmed the possibility of using the method of treating various injuries of internal wounds without surgical intervention…
However, scientists say the new technology still needs to be refined bio-ink and a bioprinting platform…
We also previously reported on the development of an ultrathin endoscope for blood vessels.
