Shear stress in fluid dynamics has a well-known impact on vascular cell morphology, proliferation, orientation, and the organization and composition of extracellular matrix. There is an increasing interest in the field of tissue engineering to use defined shear stress in bioreactors for tissue conditioning and guided tissue formation. Especially for cardiovascular structures like heart valves or blood vessels, the type and appropriate amount of shear stress needed to improve tissue formation… CONTINUE READING
