Engineering Blood Vessels Using Shape-Morphing Scaffolds

Cardiovascular disease is now the number one cause of death globally according to the World Health Organization, with more than 175 million patients dying from it every year In recent years, tissue engineering has emerged as a source of functional vascular analogs for treating cardiovascular disease Nevertheless, three-dimensional (3D) endothelialization remains a great challenge for tissue-engineered vascular grafts (TEVGs) Chinese Academy of Sciences created a new shape-morphing scaffold, that can be programmed into to a well-defined 3D tubular shape to facilitate the 3D endothelialization of small-diameter vascular grafts
