In this study, the angiogenetic effect of sintered 45S5 Bioglass® was quantitatively assessed for the first time in the arteriovenous loop (AVL) model. An AVL was created by interposition of a venous graft from the contralateral side between the femoral artery and vein in the medial thigh of eight rats. The loop was placed in a Teflon isolation chamber and was embedded in a sintered 45S5 Bioglass® granula matrix filled with fibrin gel. Specimens were investigated 3 weeks postoperatively by… CONTINUE READING
