The regulation of endothelial cell (EC) and smooth muscle cell (SMC) proliferation following vascular interventions is critical to clinical efficacy. Our laboratory has developed a method of impregnating biomaterials with suspensions containing bioactive proteins resulting in the capability of differentially modulating EC and SMC growth in vitro and in vivo following implantation. We have previously reported that 60 mu internodal distance ePTFE grafts impregnated with fibrin glue (FG… CONTINUE READING
