Induction of an inter-connected microvessel network in a tissue-engineered construct prior to implantion may be an alternative to improve the success rate of cell/tissue survival and wound integration. Conditions of endothelial cell-seeding density and distribution were investigated in two 3-D angiogenesis culture systems. Endothelial cells were either(More)
