Expanding tissue scaffold could help avoid open-heart surgery
With doctors facing huge challenges looking after patients post heart attacks and other heart surgery, research is currently booming in investigating ways of repairing permanent damage to the organ. Researchers at the University of Toronto Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering have developed a new regenerative patch, which could mean the end to evasive surgery on already weak patients. The expanding tissue bandage is flexible and can be implanted via a small needle.
