Artificial blood vessels: Tri-layered artificial blood vessels for first time

3 febrero 2015

By combining micro-imprinting and electro-spinning techniques, researchers have developed a vascular graft composed of three layers for the first time. This tri-layered composite has allowed researchers to utilize separate materials that respectively possess mechanical strength and promote new cell growth – a significant problem for existing vascular grafts that have only consisted of a single or double layer.
