Multi-layered poly(glycerol-sebacate) (PGS) scaffolds with controlled pore microarchitectures were fabricated, combined with heart cells, and cultured with perfusion to engineer contractile cardiac muscle constructs. First, one-layered (1L) scaffolds with accordion-like honeycomb shaped pores and elastomeric mechanical properties were fabricated by laser… CONTINUE READING
