What is artificial heart biofabrication?

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S. 

 This is because,unlike other organ cells,heart cells can't repair itself.

That's why the fabrication of an artificial heart for transplant came into process 

 In this prcoess researchers need to replicate the unique structures that make up the heart 

They would have to recreate the helical geometrics of heart for heart beat like motion.

 Bioengineers have developed the first biohybrid model of human ventricles with helically aligned beating cardiac cells 

 This development was made possible using a new method of additive textile manufacturing

 This work is a major step for organ biofabrication and brings us closer to our ultimate goal of building a human heart for transplants
