Each year, hundreds of thousands of patients undergo coronary artery bypass surgery in the United States.(1) Approximately one third of these patients do not have suitable autologous donor vessels due to disease progression or previous harvest. The aim of vascular tissue engineering is to develop a suitable alternative source for these bypass grafts. In addition, engineered vascular tissue may prove valuable as living vascular models to study cardiovascular diseases. Several promising… CONTINUE READING
