Infographic: What Is The Future Of Organ Transplants?

Ancient Chinese, Greek, and Roman myths and legends feature fantastic attempts of gods and healers to transplant the body organs. These stories are considered apocryphal.

However, organ transplants became possible with time. In 1869, Swiss surgeon Jacques-Louis Reverdin performed first skin transplant.

And in 1967, doctors in South Africa performed the first successful heart transplant. These unbelievable results brought medicine to another level.

Unfortunately, these days a lot of people have to wait for years for a transplant. According to the latest statistics, on average, twenty people die every day in the United States because of the lack of available organs for transplantation.

Every 15 minutes, a new patient is added to the kidney waiting list. Taking this into account, scientists decided to produce artificial organs using 3D printing.

This innovation can become an answer to donor shortages and help rescue the lives of millions of people in the future. Scientists state that there will be no need for organ transplantation in the next twenty years. All organs will be printed for patients on demand.

Here are some interesting facts about artificial organ transplant, according to Quick Fix Synthetic:

About Chris Wilder

Chris Wilder spent many years working as a part-time phlebotomist, [and yes he knows all the vampire jokes] while honing his writing skills. In 2017 he gave up playing around with blood to become a full-time writer. While dealing with blood might seem a cold and analytical vocation, his role of phlebotomist required dealing with nervous patients who needed plenty of empathy and compassion, Chris has carried this over to his written work. He believes that Quick Fix Synthetic products are the best chance of success. With his wide knowledge in this field and his understanding of how urine drug tests can affect the lives of everyday people like you and me, Chris can explain in layman's turns all the important information you need to know. In his free time, he likes to hang out with friends and check out local bands drinking a glass or two of his favorite Makers Mark Bourbon, while enjoying a recreational smoke. To keep himself in shape he takes extremely short walks with Lola, his incredibly lazy pet pug.
