Rebuilding Heart Valves Using Tissue Engineering

Rebuilding Heart Valves Using Tissue Engineering

Current medical technology to replace heart valves is problematic for the patient. Patients with mechanical heart valves must take anticoagulation therapy to prevent blood clots. This solution can cause morbidity. Patients with bioprosthetic heart valves face degeneration and calcification of the implanted valve over time, which may cause more than one surgery in the lifetime […]
