Interviews concerning health politics

Good health is human's most precious thing. Since that applies to everyone politics concerned with health turn into an interesting, sometimes explosive subject. MEDICA.de speaks with managers, experts and politicians about news from health politics.

 
 

Atherosclerosis: Getting to the root of the problem with a turbo gene

Photo: two physicians working at a test set-up [09/02/2016] Many people suffer from atherosclerosis, especially in developed countries. The buildup of fatty deposits inside the arterial blood vessels leads to strokes and heart attacks. Now, a new method is designed to get to the root of the problem, and with the help of nanoparticles inject new turbo replacement cells into the blood vessels which are intended to exert their curative effect.Atherosclerosis: Getting to the root of the problem with a turbo gene - Read more

Filling bone defects – replacement tissue with its own blood supply

[01/02/2016] First grow tissue in the lab, then insert it into patients when they need it and you’re done! Unfortunately, things are not as easy as people hoped at the onset of “tissue engineering”. Although robust tissues for bone defects can be grown in a petri dish, for example, they unfortunately quickly die off again inside the body if there is no corresponding nutrient supply.

Melt electrospinning writing: polymer fibers for tissue engineering

[01/02/2016] Sometimes, soft tissue in our body needs to be replaced after surgery or an injury. But surgeons are not always able to take tissue from other body parts as a replacement. Then, they need to use implants. The production of soft implants that can constantly endure load and stress like our own tissue is a big challenge for research. Melt electrospinning writing can be a solution.Melt electrospinning writing: polymer fibers for tissue engineering - Read more

Customized Implants cover bones optimally

Photo: Knee implant [22/01/2016] It may fits, but somewhere it still tweaks. Although a suit off the rack serves its purpose, it is still far from being an ideal solution. With a custom made heart it is different. It is similar with implants. Often patients complain about the fact that those implants feel strange. 3D printing is on the best way to change this. Here, the implants are adapted to the carrier.Customized Implants cover bones optimally - Read more

Artificial heart valve: "The structure is meant to be broken down again by the body at a later point."

( Source: MEDICA.de )

Photo: artificial heart valve [08/01/2016] There are various artificial heart valves available for children, but they have one essential drawback: they need to be replaced because the children are still growing. The artificial valve, on the other hand, remains the same size – and subsequently becomes too small. This is why an artificial heart valve that grows over time would be ideal.
