New article ‘Transcetheter-Delivered Expandable Bioresorbable Polymeric Graft with Stenting Capacity Induces Vascular Regeneration’

Very interesting and exciting article was published by Dr. Anthal Smits, together with Prof. Frank Baaijens and Prof. Carlijn Bouten and coworkes. The article ‘Transcetheter-Delivered Expandable Bioresorbable Polymeric Graft with Stenting Capacity Induces Vascular Regeneration’ was published in JACC: Basic to Tanslational Science.

Summary

As the next step in the translation of vascular tissue engineering, this study uniquely combines transcatheter delivery and in situ tissue regeneration using a novel bioresorbable electrospun polymer graft that can be implanted minimally invasively. Once delivered inside a small-diameter vessel, the electrospun microstructure supports the vessel wall, facilitates cellular infiltration, and guides organized tissue formation.
