- ... Rapid endothelialization is a key factor that determines the success of small-diameter vascular grafts as an artery substitute in the treatment of cardiovascular diseases. Aimed to facilitate vascular regeneration, we developed a vascular scaffold loaded with resveratrol, which is a natural compound extracted from plants and showed multifaceted effects in cardiovascular protection. The tubular pol ...

- ... Synthetic artificial vascular grafts have exhibited low patency rate and severe neointimal hyperplasia in replacing small-caliber arteries (<6 mm) because of their failure to generate a functional endothelium. In this study, small-caliber (2.0 mm) electrospun poly(ε-caprolactone) (PCL) vascular grafts were modified with a fusion protein VEGF–HGFI which consists of the class I hydrophobin (HGFI) an ...
