3D printing for hip implant applications: a review. (2020)
Journal Article
OKOLIE, O., STACHUREK, I., KANDASUBRAMANIAN, B. and NJUGUNA, J. 2020. 3D printing for hip implant applications: a review. Polymers [online], 12(11), articles ID 2682. Available from: https://doi.org/10.3390/polym12112682

There is a rising demand for replacement, regeneration of tissues and organ repairs for patients who suffer from diseased/damaged bones or tissues such as hip pains. The hip replacement treatment relies on the implant, which may not always meet the r... Read More about 3D printing for hip implant applications: a review..
