Recent progress in vascular tissue-engineered blood vessels

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of death in the U.S and results in the loss of approximately one million lives and more than 400 billion U.S. dollars for treatments every year. Recently, tissue engineered blood vessels have been studied and developed as promising replacements for treatment with autologous veins. Here, we summarize the cell sources and methods to make tissue-engineered blood vessels (TEBVs), the recent progress in TEBV related research, and also the recent progress in TEBV related clinical studies.
