Scientists develop injectable tissue bandage to repair hearts
16 August 2017 Current Affairs: Scientists from the University of Toronto, Canada have developed an injectable tissue bandage dubbed as AngioChip, smaller than a postage stamp can repair damaged hearts.

The AngioChip is a tiny patch of heart tissue with its own blood vessels and heart cells beating with a regular rhythm. It is made out of the biocompatibility, biodegradable polymer.

The newly developed technique lets researchers inject a repair patch (AngioChip) using a small needle, without the need to open up the chest cavity.
