Human umbilical veins (HUV) have recently been suggested as a starting material for vascular tissue engineering. HUV possess a functional smooth muscle layer and could be turned into an immunologically inert graft with contractile properties by creating a neoendothelium from the recipient's own cells. This study investigated methods to remove the native endothelium without impairing the ...
