Texas A&M: 3D Printed Bone the Future of Facial Surgery

Posted by Rebecca Partridge on Wed, Jan 11, 2017

Currently, doctors have two options when a patient needs a facial bone replaced due to injury or illness, such as cancer. They can take a bone from another part of the body and graft it into place. However, implant morbidity and complications caused by the trauma of multiple surgeries make this option less than ideal. The second option is to graft synthetic materials to the site. However, from time of injury to delivery of the custom implant takes about three to four weeks, which reduces the chances of the patient healing properly. But now a new technology being developed by researchers at Texas A&M’s College of Dentistry may revolutionize the treatment process.

Major New Cancer Facility Construction at Ohio State Combines Research and Treatment

Posted by Jaimee Saliba on Wed, May 02, 2012

There's a reason why top university medical centers garner the prestige (and the funding) that they do: research labs + medical school + hospital = optimization of all three units, with ripe opportunities for collaboration, sharing of resources, and recruiting the best medical scientists. So there's always reason to cheer when a major university med center like Ohio State builds new facilities, whether they're clinical or research, because both will support the institution's overall mission and budget.  In the case of Ohio State's new James Cancer Center and Solove Research Institute, both patients seeking treatment and scientists doing basic and applied cancer research will benefit from the state-of-the-art building that is rising on the Columbus medical campus right now, with its opening due in 2014. The complex will house the cancer center on 12 stories; the other 8 will comprise the critical care hospital, mechanical equipment and an as yet undetermined floor.

Medical Research at UCLA Tests Warm Heart Transport Device in Trial

Posted by BCI Staff on Thu, Sep 15, 2011

No more coolers for hearts on their way from donor to recipient.  UCLA Medical has recently successfully transplanted a warm, beating heart into 61-year-old man with cardiomyopathy.  The surgery was part of a clinical trial program that UCLA and other research hospitals in the United States are enrolled in to study the benefits of a new transport system for warm organs from Massachusetts company TransMedics.  The warm box technology is known as their Organ Care System (OCS), and it keeps the heart beating and operational throughout transport, rather than freezing it.  Specifically, the TransMedics system has these key functions, according to company specs:
