UV-assisted 3D bioprinting of nano-reinforced hybrid cardiac patch for myocardial tissue engineering

Tissue Engineering Part C: Methods 2017 Volume: 24 Issue 2, Pages 74-88

Biofabrication of cell supportive cardiac patches that can be directly implanted on myocardial infarct is a potential solution for myocardial infarction repair. Ideally, cardiac patches should be able to mimic myocardium extracellular matrix for rapid integration with the host tissue, raising the need to develop cardiac constructs with complex features. In particular, cardiac patches should be electrically conductive, mechanically robust and elastic, biologically active and pre-vascularized.. In this study, we aim to biofabricate a nano-reinforced hybrid cardiac patch laden with human coronary artery endothelial cells (HCAECs) with improved electrical, mechanical and biological behavior. A safe UV exposure time with insignificant…
