Contact-free monitoring of vessel graft stiffness - proof of concept as a tool for vascular tissue engineering

Hoenicka, Markus ; Kaspar, Marcel ; Schmid, Christof ; Liebold, Andreas ; Schrammel, Siegfried


Tissue-engineered vessel grafts have to mimic the biomechanical properties of native blood vessels. Manufacturing processes often condition grafts to adapt them to the target flow conditions. Graft stiffness is influenced by material properties and dimensions and determines graft compliance. This proof-of-concept study evaluated a contact-free method to monitor biomechanical properties without ...
