In this study, microfiber films were used as scaffolds for the purpose of vascular tissue engineering. The microfiber films were prepared by electrospinning of poly (l-lactide) (PLLA) and polyvinyl pyrrolidone (PVP). PLLA and PVP with different ratios were blended with dichloromethane as a spinning solvent at room temperature. The properties of the… CONTINUE READING
