    The Journal of the American College of Surgeons reported Dr. Michael Harrison at University of California San Francisco successfully used Magnamosis instead of suturing or stapling for five patients that required small bowel continuity to be reestablished following complicated urinary reconstructions. The Magnamosis technique uses two circular magnets to create an anastomosis. The patients have been followed for a year after surgery and have not shown any complications as a result of the technique. Full Story

    The Journal of Children’s Orthopaedics reports that the University of California San Diego, clinical researchers were able to create patient specific connections between the femur and the pelvis connection using 3D printing during surgery and saving almost 40 minutes of surgical time. The condition can occur in teens and pre-teens, and particularly boys, as a result of slipped capital femoral epiphysis, a condition in which the head of the femur becomes weak and gets squeezed too much, causing a misalignment of how the femur connects with the pelvis.

    According to a study published on Wednesday in the journal Nature, scientists have for the first time, edited a dangerous mutation from the genes in a human embryo. This development comes just months after a national scientific committee recommended new guidelines for modifying embryos, easing blanket proscriptions but urging the technique be used only for dire medical problems. But the achievement is also an example of human genetic engineering, once feared and unthinkable, and is sure to renew ethical concerns that some might try to design babies with certain traits, like greater intelligence or athleticism.

    Science magazine reports, researchers at Harvard University have developed a remarkable new adhesive material that has two layers: one is an adhesive that includes positive polymers that stick out of it, and the other is a “dissipative matrix”. They drew inspiration from the Dusky Arion slug that releases a unique glue on its bottom that makes it stick to practically every surface. The adhesive may become useful for surgeons and other healthcare professionals to repair injured and diseased tissues.Full Story
