Video showing cases of mitral valve degeneration, before (via imaging used in diagnosis) and after repair using the minimally invasive Leipzig Loop technique. For more information, see the sister article "Restringing the Heart's Cords" at http://www.muschealth.com/pn/yir/clinical-innovation/hvc/cords/ Voiceover narration is provided by Mario Castillo-Sang, M.D., a cardiothoracic surgeon at the Medical University of South Carolina who specializes in minimally invasive valve repair.

Making Muscle: Tissue Engineering in MUSC's Department of Surgery

submitted by: mcgheek
Samir Fakhry, M.D., Chief of MUSC's Division of General Surgery, and Michael Yost, PhD, Associate Chair of Research in MUSC's Department of Surgery, discuss the promise of engineered tissues for the treatment of surgical and trauma patients. Engineered tissue can instruct the body to regenerate native tissue instead of generating scar, improving cosmetic and functional outcomes. Bioprinters, 3D printers for living tissue, will help realize the promise of engineered tissue for clinical care.k
