5 bizzare body parts that can be grown in lab

Imagine vaginas grown in dishes and bones made out of 3D printers. This must look like a scene from a science fiction movie but it has actually become a reality. Look at this pic if it is that hard for you to believe:

It is amazing to see how far science has come. So here is a list of 5 weirdest body parts that are actually grown in lab:

1. Ear grown at petri-dish

Researchers have successfully grown noses, ears and blood vessels in the laboratory in a bold attempt for making body parts using stem cells.

It is among several labs around the world, including in the US, they are developing custom made organs in the lab.There has been other organs like tear ducts, blood vessels and windpipes used by handful of patients in Britain.

Perfect ears are designed for people who are born without them.

2. Nose in the forehead

A man named Xiaolian had a traffic accident and suffered from an infection in the cartilage of his nose. The surgeons were not able to repair the nose and came up with an idea of growing a new nose in his forehead!

This nose was made by using the cartilage from his ribs and a skin tissue expander. It was then transplanted on to the centre of his face

3. Vagina grown in lab

Vaginas have been grown in a lab and also have been successfully implanted into four teenage girls who suffer from a rare genetic condition which left them with underdeveloped genitalia.

The lab-grown body parts is engineered by using the patients’ own cells to ensure a perfect tissue match.

Scans of the pelvic region are also used for designing a tube-like 3D biodegradable scaffold for every patient, which makes sure that the vaginas are the perfect size for every woman. The patients have reported the normal levels of things like desire, arousal, lubrication, orgasm, satisfaction and painless intercourse.

4. The stomach fingertip

When a tip of his finger was chopped accidentally, 20 years old furniture worker Wang Yongjun has to rush to hospital for the surgery.

In an effort to preserve his finger doctors had attached the partially-severed stub to his stomach hoping that the new skin and muscle would grow around it.

This technique was a way of restoring blood circulation to the injured finger so that the body could repair itself.

The surgery was successful and Wang had a brand new fingertip, that was separated from his stomach, within a month.

5. The 3D printed skull

A full skull replacement was done by using 3D printing. It first became popular when Dutch patient was treated by using the 3D printed skull.

The plastic skull was produced from the 3D printer but it is not the first body part which is printed out by one of these amazing machines.

An 83-year-old woman had received the first fake body part made from the advanced printer when she underwent a jaw transplant in the Netherlands in 2012.

The 3D technology has also successfully produced other body parts including jaws and ears.
