      Engineered Blood Vessels

      Did you know that more than 30 percent of patients with coronary and peripheral artery disease do not have veins that can be used for grafts during surgery? Tissue engineering is used to generate grafts for patients who need surgical replacement tissue, including the more than 30 percent of patients with coronary and peripheral artery disease who do not have veins that can be used for grafts during surgery. Dr. Bashur will discuss what vascular tissue engineering is and why the size of the vessel matters when engineering new tissue. This will include a description of the difference between engineering larger arteries and small capillaries that are found in skin, muscle and other tissue.  Presented by: Dr. Christopher Bashur
