3D Bioprinting for Reconstructive Surgery: Techniques and Applications examines the combined use of materials, procedures and tools necessary for creating structural tissue constructs for reconstructive purposes. Offering a broad analysis of the field, the first set of chapters review the range of biomaterials which can be used to create 3D-printed tissue constructs. Part Two looks at the techniques needed to prepare biomaterials and biological materials for 3D printing, while the final set of chapters examines application-specific examples of tissues formed from 3D printed biomaterials.
3D printing of biomaterials for tissue engineering applications is becoming increasingly popular due to its ability to offer unique, patient-specific parts—on demand—at a relatively low cost. This book is a valuable resource for biomaterials scientists, biomedical engineers, practitioners and students wishing to broaden their knowledge in the allied field.

Zita M. Jessop
Ms. Zita M. Jessop MB BChir, MA Cantab, MRCS is an Academic Clinical Lecturer in the Reconstructive Surgery & Regenerative Medicine Research Group in Swansea University and Registrar at the Welsh Centre for Burns and Plastic Surgery. Ms. Jessop graduated from Cambridge University Medical School and completed her basic surgical training in London Deanery before taking up her clinical academic post in Wales. Her doctorate research, focusing on 3D bioprinting for cartilage tissue engineering, was supported by the Royal College of Surgeons Research Fellowship and the Medical Research Council Clinical Research Training Fellowship. Ms. Jessop is a member of the editorial boards of Bioprinting and 3D Printing in Medicine, the welsh representative on the Reconstructive Surgical Trials Network, has delivered over 60 national and international presentations and published over 30 articles and book chapters to date. Ms. Jessop was awarded a number of prizes from the British Association of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons and the Royal College of Surgeons of England and completed international fellowships in Utrecht (Norman Capener Travelling Fellowship) and Melbourne (Ethicon Travelling Fellowship). More recently, Ms. Jessop achieved a Fulbright Scholarship which she intends to spend at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard Medical School, to expand her field of expertise in biofabrication.
