Tissue-engineered vascular grafts require elastic, acellular porous scaffolds with controlled biodegradability and properties matching those of natural arteries. Elastin would be a desirable component for such applications, but elastin does not easily regenerate experimentally. Our approach is to develop tubular elastin scaffolds using decellularization and(More)
Scaffolds for heart valve tissue engineering must function immediately after implantation but also need to tolerate cell infiltration and gradual remodeling. We hypothesized that moderately cross-linked collagen scaffolds would fulfill these requirements. To test our hypothesis, scaffolds prepared from decellularized porcine pericardium were treated with(More)
