Microporous vascular grafts that are compliant and biodegradable can function as scaffolds for the regeneration of the arterial wall in small-caliber arteries. The purpose of this study was to determine the specific influence of both compliance and biodegradation of microporous vascular grafts on this regeneration, especially on the regeneration of elastic… CONTINUE READING
