The purpose of this study was to demonstrate the feasibility of end-to-end anastomosis between tissue-engineered intestine and native small bowel and to investigate the effect of this anastomosis on their growth. Microporous biodegradable polymer tubes were created from a fiber mesh of polyglycolic acid sprayed with 5% polylactic acid. Intestinal epithelial organoid units were harvested from neonatal Lewis rats and seeded onto polymers. These constructs were implanted into the omentum of adult… CONTINUE READING
