Previous in vitro studies have demonstrated increased vascular endothelial cell adhesion on random nanostructured titanium (Ti) surfaces compared with conventional (or nanometer smooth) Ti surfaces. These results indicated for the first time the potential nanophase metals have for improving vascular stent efficacy. However, considering the structural properties of the endothelium, which is composed of elongated vascular endothelial cells aligned with the direction of blood flow, it has been… CONTINUE READING
