The heart was printed rabbit sized using stem cells created from human cells.
The article mentions that nobody has 3D printed tissues with blood vessels till then, but I do believe that is false. I recall someone printing the hollow of a blood vessel with sugar water or syrup. I do not know how good the blood vessels were or if the lining of them were made of the correct type of cells, but it created something functional.
It is just one of the junk articles on Facebook with the bullshit ads at the bottom and has just teaser content. If someone cares to look for a better link on the news, please share it with us.
