Australian Researchers Using Bioengineering and 3D Printing to Design Better Replacement Bone Ligament Constructs

Australian Researchers Using Bioengineering and 3D Printing to Design Better Replacement Bone Ligament Constructs

The most common type of wrist ligament injury occurs with the Scapholunate Interosseous Ligament (SLIL). Injuries to this particular ligament can lead to the dislocation of the lunate and scaphoid carpal bones in the hand and wrist, which can result in long-term disability; for athletes, an SLIL injury can spell the end of their career. These injuries […]
