With the high occurrence of cardiovascular disease and increasing numbers of patients requiring vascular access, there is a significant need for a small-diameter (<6 mm inner diameter) vascular graft that can provide long-term patency. Tissue engineering provides a very promising solution to this need. Approaches utilizing adult stem cells can address limitations previously realized in the use of terminally differentiated vascular cells, without introducing the ethical concerns that continue to… CONTINUE READING
