Fabrication of capillary-like network in a matrix of water-soluble polymer using poly(methyl methacrylate) microfibers.

Abstract

Poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) microfibers were used as a template for development of a capillary-like network in agarose hydrogel. Microfibers with diameter 10-20 μm, which is comparable to the diameter of native capillary vessels, were fabricated using a wet spinning technique. The microfibers were embedded in agarose gel and dissolved by immersing the… (More)
