A method and apparatus for producing a vessel-equivalent prosthesis is described. A contractile agent such as fibroblast cells, smooth muscle cells or platelets is incorporated into a collagen lattice and contracts the lattice axially around an inner core. After the structure has set, additional lay ...

Bell Eugene: Fabrication of living blood vessels and glandular tissues. Massachusetts Institute of Technology, REYNOLDS Leo R, November 11, 1982: WO/1982/003764

A method and apparatus for producing a vessel-equivalent prosthesis (44). A contractile agent such as fibroblast cells, smooth muscle cells or platelets is incorporated into a coolagen lattice and contracts the lattice axially around an inner core (12). After the structure has set, additional layers ...
