Biology, Geometry Unite to Thwart Common Cardiovascular Diseases

To treat cardiovascular disease, surgery can remove blockages in large vessels in the heart or legs but is not possible in small vessels. To address this problem, researchers designed 3D-printed patches seeded with vessel-inducing endothelial cells....

Squirtable Surgical Glue Could Transform Surgeries and Save Lives

Sutures and staples can be inadequate in complex surgeries and cannot make an air-tight or liquid-tight seal on a lung or artery wound or incision. Now researchers have created a surgical glue that sets to form an elastic air-tight or liquid-tight...
