Bioprinting in Vascularization Strategies
Mahboubeh Jafarkhani , Zeinab Salehi , Amir Aidun , Mohammad Ali Shokrgozar
Three-dimensional (3D) printing technology has revolutionized tissue engineering field because of its excellent potential of accurately positioning cell-laden constructs. One of the main challenges in the formation of functional engineered tissues is the lack of an efficient and extensive network of microvessels to support cell viability. By printing vascular cells and appropriate biomaterials, the 3D printing could closely mimic in vivo conditions to generate blood vessels. In vascular tissue engineering, many various approaches of 3D printing have been developed, including inkjet printing, selective laser sintering, and extrusion methods. The 3D printing is going to be the integral part of tissue engineering approaches; in comparison with other scaffolding techniques, 3D printing has two major merits: automation and high cell density. Undoubtedly, the application of 3D printing in vascular tissue engineering will be extended if its resolution, printing speed, and available materials can be improved.
