Zurich experts developing drug-coated 3D printed airway stents in $2.37M project

Researchers from the University Hospital Zurich, ETH Zurich, and the University of Zurich have joined forces to make patient-specific, drug-coated stents with a 3D printer. The project has received more than $2.37 million in funding. Researchers from ETH Zurich (pictured) and two other insitutes will contribute to an ambitious medical 3D printing project Narrowing of the respiratory tract can occur after injury, such as a blow to the throat area, or because of disease, when malformations, infections, and tumors can cause the airway to close up. Whatever the cause, narrowing of the tract is a big problem, since it […]
