BACKGROUND The effectiveness of human saphenous vein grafting is limited by hyperplasia of the vessel wall. The current paper reports on a pulsed perfused venous human organ culture model (pp-venous HOC-model) with a Windkessel function. MATERIAL/METHODS Saphenous vein grafts from 21 patients undergoing coronary bypass grafting were cultured either in venous or arterial hemodynamic conditions. Up to four vein segments were fixed in parallel connection and attached to a closed loop pulsed… CONTINUE READING
