Title:
Tissue engineered venous matrices for potential applications in the urogenital tract. 
Abstract:
Tissue engineering is lacking inexpensive, easily applicable techniques for tissue replacement. We investigated the potential use of native veins for tissue-engineering applications in the urological field. Forty-eight porcine veins, half seeded with urothelial cells and half unseeded, were kept in vitro for 7 days. Four seeded and four unseeded scaffolds were analyzed after 3 and 7 days. The remaining 32 veins were implanted subcutaneously into 16 athymic mice. Four athymic mice were sacrificed...    »
