The extracellular matrix (ECM) is characterized by not only well-preserved scaffolds of organs and vascularized tissues, but also by extremely low immunogenicity during allo- or xeno-implantation. This study aimed to establish a model of a composite microvasculature network scaffold with a small-caliber-dominant vascular pedicle by decellularizing fetal porcine aorta and the conterminous mesentery. The aorta and the conterminous mesenteric vascular system originating from the inferior… CONTINUE READING
