Functionalization and characterization of silk based gel-spun vascular grafts.Smoot, Daniel.
Abstract: Abstract Vascular grafts made from synthetic materials such as ePTFE (Teflon) and PET (Darcon) demonstrate low rates of patency in the small (1-6mm) inner diameter (ID) regime, which is attributed to thrombosis and anastamotic intimal hyperplasia. Here we propose the utilization of a functionalized acellular and absorbable gel-spun silk vascular graft as an alternative material to synthe... read more
