The Modification of the Viscoelastic Mechanical Properties of Collagen Hydrogels by Creep comments

by Bernard Drouin
Most of the mechanical solicitations within the human body are stress driven. As an example, vascular biomaterials are submitted to an average blood pressure of 100 mmHg...

Surface modification of PLA films for biomedical applications using nitrogen and argon atmospheric plasma treatments comments

by Gaétan Laroche saeideh shokrollahi tooranposhti
In the past few decades, stents have been widely used in clinical applications to treat blocked vessels...

Mesenchymal progenitor cell differentiation on electrospun poly (ester amide) fibres for vascular tissue engineering comments

by Kibret Mequanint Sarah Kiros
Vascular tissue engineering seeks to produce biologically and mechanically responsive vascular substitutes using cells, scaffolds and bioreactors, to address the shortcomings of current vascular interventions such as coronary artery bypass grafts and to create pre-clinical testing platforms to study vascular pathologies...

Modeling the mechanical behavior of mono- and multilayer electrospun structures for vascular graft applications comments

by Sophie Lerouge Matthieu Gauthier
Two problems arise when replacing a patient artery by a synthetic vascular graft VG . The first one is the absence of endothelial lining on the lumen side of the graft, related to the inappropriate surface properties and textures, which leads to VG thrombosis...

Preparation of a Small Intestinal Submucosa Modified Polypropylene Hybrid Mesh via a Mussel-inspired Polydopamine Coating for Pelvic Reconstruction comments

by Liangpeng Ge
Pelvic organ prolapse POP is a serious health issue that affects many adult women. Surgical treatments for POP patients comprise a common strategy in which scaffold materials are used to reconstruct the prolapsed pelvic...
