To design a "mechano-active" small-diameter artificial vascular graft, a tubular scaffold made of elastomeric poly(L-lactide-co-epsilon-caprolactone) fabrics at different wall thicknesses was fabricated using an electrospinning (ELSP) technique. The wall thickness of the fabricated tube (inner diameter; approximately 2.3-2.5 mm and wall thickness; 50-340 microm) increased proportionally with ELSP time. The wall thickness dependence of mechanical responses including intraluminal pressure-induced… CONTINUE READING
