Additive Manufacturing in Biomedical Applications
In Situ Bioprinting—Current Applications and Future Challenges
Bioprinting has been advancing in the field of tissue engineering as the process for fabricating scaffolds, making use of additive manufacturing technologies. In situ bioprinting (also termed intraoperative bioprinting) is a promising solution to address the limitations of conventional bioprinting approaches. This article discusses the main approaches and technologies for in situ bioprinting. It provides a brief overview of the bioprinting pipeline, highlighting possible solutions to improve currently used approaches. Additionally, case studies of in situ bioprinting are provided and in situ bioprinting future perspectives are discussed.
