Abstract

During the last decades, many attempts have been made to produce functional vascular substitutes that can be used to repair diseased blood vessels. However, currently available substitutes have presented inadequate mechanical, physiological or functional properties, leading to thrombosis or intimal hyperplasia following surgery. In this way, the objective of this study is to produce small-caliber (<6 mm) vascular substitutes using scaffolds to mimic the structure, morphology, mechanical and biological properties of the native blood vessels, having antithrombogenic properties and may hold the potential to repair blood vessels for vascular repair. In this way, scaffolds will be fabricated by rotary jet spinning polymer based on collagen, elastin and polyurethane. The influence of the fibers on the structure and morphology of the scaffolds will be evaluated using scanning electron microscopy and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. Thermal properties will be evaluated by thermogravimetry analysis. Mechanical properties will be evaluated using universal testing machine. Biological properties will be evaluated by blood platelet adhesion, cell adhesion, viability, proliferation and cell cycle. The biodegradation of the scaffolds will also be tested using in vitro mass loss. (AU)
