A team of Israeli scientists “printed” a heart with a patient’s own cells in a world first, researchers say.Past researchers had been able to print simple tissues without blood vessels, the team said. This development was the first time “anyone anywhere has successfully engineered and printed an entire heart replete with cells, blood vessels, ventricles and chambers,”

…Because the heart is made from the patient’s own biological material, it reduces the chance the transplant would fail, according to the research paper.
