|Title:||Engineering 3D thick porcine extracellular matrix for cardiac regeneration||Authors:||Nguyen, Evelyne Bao-Vi||Keywords:||DRNTU::Engineering::Materials||Issue Date:||2014||Source:||Nguyen, E. B.-V. (2014). Engineering 3D thick porcine extracellular matrix for cardiac regeneration. Doctoral thesis, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.||Abstract:||This project focused on engineering a thick cardiac patch using an acellular scaffold derived from a porcine left ventricle as a possible replacement therapy for the scar tissue formed following acute heart damage. Whereas most studies demonstrated cardiac constructs with thicknesses up to a few hundred micrometers, this project aims to recellularize an acellular scaffold with comparable thickness to the human native heart (1-1.2 cm).||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/62518||DOI:||10.32657/10356/62518||Fulltext Permission:||open||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
