Electrospun Fibrous Scaffolds for Small-Diameter Blood Vessels: A Review

  title={Electrospun Fibrous Scaffolds for Small-Diameter Blood Vessels: A Review},
  author={Nasser K Awad and Haitao Niu and Usman Ali and Yosry S. Morsi and Tong Lin},
Small-diameter blood vessels (SDBVs) are still a challenging task to prepare due to the occurrence of thrombosis formation, intimal hyperplasia, and aneurysmal dilation. Electrospinning technique, as a promising tissue engineering approach, can fabricate polymer fibrous scaffolds that satisfy requirements on the construction of extracellular matrix (ECM) of native blood vessel and promote the adhesion, proliferation, and growth of cells. In this review, we summarize the polymers that are… CONTINUE READING
