This technology is a three-dimensional cardiac construct that can be used to replace damaged tissue and promote tissue regeneration. The construct contains many variables of customization depending on the type of tissue that must be replaced. This technology will offer surgeons a way to replace necrotic tissue with a celluarized scaffold that can promote tissue regeneration.
There are numerous disease states that exist in which tissue is damaged and required replacement. Injured tissue often exacerbates tissue damage as the remaining, healthy tissue is left with an increased workload. A Three-dimensional scaffold is required in order to regenerate tissue while not provoking an immune response from the host.
- Way to replace necrotic tissue with a celluarized scaffold that can promote tissue regeneration.
- Contains many variables of customization
- Unlike other technologies that utilize 2D patches, UA14-023 blends a number of engineering principals to build a 3D scaffold that can be used to replace damaged tissue within the body.
