Abstract: Cardiovascular diseases are still the number one cause of death or invalidity in the western world today. Atherosclerotic plaques and restenosis can result in severe occlusions of peripheral and coronary arteries. Treatment depends on the severity of the disease and includes drug therapy and bypass surgery. Generally, autologous vessels are used as replacement grafts and are the first choices as vascular graft materials. However, if the patient does not have vessels with sufficient quality, as a... more
