abstract

  • After application of the described methods, new cells within restored intact leaflets as well as in single-cell preparations demonstrated normal ultrastructure and contractile and synthetic functions (normal phenotypic expression). If functioning leaflet interstitial cells can contribute to homograft durability, bioengineering methods for pretransplantation cell repopulation could be refined with these techniques and applied to clinical valve transplantation.
