Middle ear transplant to cure deafness using 3D printing technologies Thursday, May 9, 2019

A group of researchers from South Africa have successfully completed a groundbreaking operation with the use of 3D printing technologies. In fact, it represents a big advancement for the medical field, as it is the first time a middle ear transplant has been performed. Moreover, the success of this operation could represent a viable long-term solution to conductive hearing loss. The procedure was performed using 3D printing to reconstruct the broken bones of the patient’s middle ear. The researchers explained that this surgery has the potential of being conducted on patients of all ages, even on newborn babies.

With single gene insertion, blind mice regain sight Friday, May 3, 2019

UC Berkeley neuroscientists have taken AAVs targeted to ganglion cells, loaded them with a gene for green opsin, and made the normally blind ganglion cells sensitive to light.
