Cardiovascular devices such as vascular grafts, stents, and heart valves have been widely used to treat cardiovascular diseases. The failure of these devices is usually initiated by the formation of thrombus and neointima on the device surfaces. Antithrombogenic surface modifications have been employed to improve the performance of these devices. In addition to biochemical modifications, tissue engineering approaches hold the promise to fabricate nonthrombogenic biological substitutes for… CONTINUE READING
