Comparing the endothelialisation of extracellular matrix bioscaffolds with coated synthetic vascular graft materials
Coakley, Daniel Nicholas Martin; Shaikh, F.M; O'Sullivan, K; Kavanagh, Eamon G; Grace, P.A.; Walsh, Stewart R.; McGloughlin, Timothy M.
Introduction Existing synthetic vascular grafts have unacceptably high failure rates when replacing small diameter infrapopliteal vessels [1]. The lack of a confluent endothelial lining is repeatedly cited as the most common cause of conduit failure [2, 3].
