Cardiac Fibroblasts as a Support for Endothelial Cell Sprout Formation in Engineered Cardiac Tissue.

Twardowski, Rachel.

2012

Description
  • Abstract: Cardiac tissue engineering offers a promising approach to regenerating post-MI myocardial tissue; however, a primary impediment in tissue engineering lies in the inability to adequately vascularize a tissue scaffold. Cardiac tissue constructs require a closer proximity to a nutrient and blood supply than many other tissues due to the higher metabolic demands of myocardium, further d... read more
