Tissue-engineered cardiac patch seeded with human induced pluripotent stem cell derived cardiomyocytes promoted the regeneration of host cardiomyocytes in a rat model

Background Thousands of babies are born with congenital heart defects that require surgical repair involving a prosthetic implant. Lack of growth in prosthetic grafts is especially detrimental in pediatric surgery. Cell seeded biodegradable tissue engineered grafts are a novel solution to this problem. The purpose of the present study is to evaluate the feasibility of seeding...

Association of nadir oxygen delivery on cardiopulmonary bypass with serum glial fibrillary acid protein levels in paediatric heart surgery patients

OBJECTIVES Protecting the brain during cardiac surgery is a major challenge. We evaluated associations between nadir oxygen delivery (DO2) during paediatric cardiac surgery and a biomarker of brain injury, glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP).

Tissue-Engineered Small Diameter Arterial Vascular Grafts from Cell-Free Nanofiber PCL/Chitosan Scaffolds in a Sheep Model

Tissue engineered vascular grafts (TEVGs) have the potential to overcome the issues faced by existing small diameter prosthetic grafts by providing a biodegradable scaffold where the patient’s own cells can engraft and form functional neotissue. However, applying classical approaches to create arterial TEVGs using slow degrading materials with supraphysiological mechanical...

Total cavopulmonary connection for functionally single ventricle with pulmonary atresia and abnormal arborization of pulmonary arteries – exclusion of overwhelmed area by collateral arteries from Fontan circulation

Functionally single ventricle with major aortopulmonary collateral arteries and pulmonary atresia is very rare. Surgical indication for this combination of abnormalities is still unclear and Fontan procedure is still a crucial challenge for the patient who has this anomaly. We report a case with asplenia, functionally single ventricle, pulmonary artesian and pulmonary abnormal...
