Void‐Free 3D Bioprinting for In Situ Endothelialization and Microfluidic Perfusion

Advanced Functional Materials 2020 Volume 30, Issue 1, Article 1908349

Two major challenges of 3D bioprinting are the retention of structural fidelity and efficient endothelialization for tissue vascularization. Both of these issues are addressed by introducing a versatile 3D bioprinting strategy, in which a templating bioink is deposited layer‐by‐layer alongside a matrix bioink to establish void‐free multimaterial structures. After crosslinking the matrix phase, the templating phase is sacrificed to create a well‐defined 3D network of interconnected tubular channels. This void‐free 3D printing (VF‐3DP) approach circumvents the traditional concerns of structural collapse, deformation, and oxygen inhibition, moreover, it can be readily used to print materials that are widely considered “unprintable.” By…
