Controlling Vessel Growth and Directionality in Mammals and Implantable Material
A method for directing vessel growth toward a blood-deficient site in a mammal comprising implanting into the mammal an assembly of at glass fibers to form a vascular bridge with a first end of the vascular bridge in contact with the blood-deficient site and a second end of the vascular bridge remote from the blood-deficient site. Over time the bridge biodegrades and promotes vascularity in the direction of the bridge.
