Mechanical characterisation of unidirectional and cross-directional multilayered urinary bladder matrix (UBM) scaffolds.

Abstract

Multilayered biological scaffolds derived from mammalian extracellular matrix (ECM) have shown promising long-term clinical results when reconstructing damaged tissues and organs. Despite their established clinical applicability, experimental studies that describe the effects of alternate manufacturing protocols on an ECM's mechanical properties are lacking… (More)
