3D biofabrication for tubular tissue engineering

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The therapeutic replacement of diseased tubular tissue is hindered by the availability and suitability of current donor, autologous and synthetically derived protheses. Artificially created, tissue engineered, constructs have the potential to alleviate these concerns with reduced auto-immune response, high anatomical accuracy, long term patency and growth potential. The advent of 3D bio-printing technology has further supplemented the technological toolbox, opening up new biofabrication research opportunities and expanding the therapeutic potential of the field. In this review, we highlight the challenges facing those seeking to create artificial tubular tissue with its associated complex macro and microscopic architecture. Current biofabrication approaches, including 3D printing techniques, are reviewed and future directions suggested.
