In this Review from the Journal of 3D in Medicine, the authors discuss the specific biological and technical complexities of bioprinting cardiac tissues and bioengineering cardiac constructs. Keywords: 3D printing • bioprinting • cardiomyocyte • cardiovascular medicine • coronary arteries • myocardial tissue engineering • vasculature To date, 3D bioprinting has found many actual and potential applications in medicine through assembling cells, biomaterials and supporting factors into living tissues. In particular, the combination of bioprinting and tissue engineering has emerged as a new promising strategy to address the growing need for tissues and organs for both transplantation and basic research....
