Abstract

A novel elastomer, poly(1,10-decanediol-co-citric acid) (PDC), and its potential use in blood vessel tissue engineering were studied. The elastomer was based on polycondensation of citric acid and a linear aliphatic diol. The elastomer was characterized by conducting mechanical testing, burst pressure measurement, and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) analysis. Relative degradation in 0.1 M NaOH and biocompatibility evaluation in vitro with human aortic smooth muscle (HASMC) and endothelial cells (HAEC) and in vivo using subcutaneous implantation in rats were also carried out. PDC was found to exhibit excellent biocompatibility both in vitro and in vivo, and burst pressure on the order of native blood vessels.
