Three dimensional tissue engineering with biodegradable breast scaffolds post mastectomy

Hello all, 

The above is being researched by Queensland University Hospital with Prof Dietmar Hutmacher as the head. It will be a great alternative to breast implants as it replaced by regenerating tissue rather than replacing it.

I am wondering if anyone is in the know about upcoming clinical trials? I noticed it in a couple of stories in daily newspaper and media, six years ago when I had my mastectomy and sentinal lobe clearance. 
 I was hopeful when I saw it and held off having any of the current recon. surgeries.

All the best and it's onwards and upwards, Maria

    Hi @Mariaria

    Thankyou for sharing the research above.

    Not sure if you have reached out to the people within your treating team or surgeon in relation to the above question regarding clinical trials. You could refer to the Breast Surgeons of Australia and New Zealand website (BreastSurgANZ) website, which provides a comprehensive search of breast surgeons in your local area
