In another example, tissue engineering constructs containing both embedded cells and a planar array of microchannels were developed to facilitate the delivery of nutrient-laden fl uids that promote cell viability. [ 14–17 ] Despite these recent examples, the fabrication of synthetic microvascular networks composed of complex, hierarchical 3D architectures remains an elusive goal. Although several techniques, including soft lithography, [ 14 , 18 ]
