#Flash: 1st 'Made in India' 3-D printed heart valve- A giant
India's first 3-D printed heart valve was developed in Chennai, using specialized bio-polymers that are very similar to human tissue, which can be directly implanted in heart patients. These newly developed heart valves can overcome problems related to artificial heart valves such as the risk of blood clot formation, valve infection, the need for long-term blood thinner medications, etc. Their cost could be much lower than that of the imported heart valves that are currently used in India.
