constructs that remained viable for more than 28 days in static culture. However, without exposing the vascular lining cells to flow, their functionality and in vivo stability are suboptimal. Here, we " prime " the constructs by dynamically perfusing them and determine how flow induced shear stress optimizes the endoluminal surfaces of our tissue-engineered… (More)
To evaluate a new model of intraoperative electromyographic (EMG) assessment of the tibial and fibular nerves, and its respectives motor units in rats.
Eight Wistar rats underwent intraoperative EMG on both hind limbs at two different moments: week 0 and week 12. Supramaximal electrical stimulation applied on sciatic nerve, and compound… (More)
