In recent years, the rapid development of bio-3D printing technology has brought great changes and breakthroughs to the medical field. Biological materials and cells can be assembled in an orderly manner according to a specific structure and composition through bio-3D printing technology, so as to achieve the manufacture of highly customized artificial organs and tissues. The emergence of this technology not only provides a new treatment for patients with tissue and organ damage, but also provides a new experimental model for the development of medical research and biological science. The heart is one of the most important organs in the human body, which is of great significance for the simulation and drug development of heart diseases. Over the past three decades, there have been significant advances in bioprinting research and applications for the heart. Through a deep understanding of the structure and function of the heart, combined with the advantages of bioprinting technology, in vitro simulation of the heart can be achieved. The purpose of this paper is to review the research and application of bio-3D printed heart in the past 30 years, in order to provide reference for related.
