Tissue engineering strategies are being used to develop functional 3D heart muscle in vitro. Work within our own group has been focused on the development of bioengineered heart muscle using fibrin gel as a support matrix. As tissue engineering models of heart muscle are developed in the laboratory, a critical technologic challenge remains the ability to delivery nutrients to the entire tissue construct. To address this specific need, we have developed a novel perfusion system for cardiac… CONTINUE READING
