Blood vessels

Out of the many things that scientist have made in labs, blood vessels seems to be the most mind-blowing.

In a recent discovery by the University of Sydney, the team was able to create a technology that makes it possible to produce materials that resemble the structure of living blood arteries, having a substantial impact on how the surgery will be performed in the future.

Manufacturing living blood vessels

Preclinical research revealed that after implanting the produced blood vessel into mice, the body accepted the material, leading to the growth of new cells and tissue in the appropriate locations, effectively converting it into a living blood vessel.

New discovery & New Possibility 

Currently, when children have an abnormal vessel, surgeons are forced to utilize synthetic vessels. These vessels work well for a short time, but children inevitably require repeated procedures as they grow up.

This new cutting-edge technology offers an intriguing framework for the created blood vessels to continue to expand and change over time.
