Title (EN) MEDICAL DEVICES HAVING A MICRO-FLUIDIC CHANNELED VASCULATURE
(FR) DISPOSITIFS MÉDICAUX COMPRENANT UNE VASCULARISATION DE CANAUX MICROFLUIDIQUES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention provides medical devices containing a micro-fluidic channeled vasculature capable of attaining fluid and gas flow there through, which are capable of augmenting or supplanting one or more physiological functions of an organ. The medical devices may be adapted to be exogenously seeded with at least organ specific cells. Methods of making and using the medical devices to supplant or augment one or more physiological functions of an organ are also provided.
(FR)La présente invention concerne des dispositifs médicaux contenant une vascularisation de canaux microfluidiques capable de réaliser un écoulement de fluides et de gaz, lesdits dispositifs étant capables d'augmenter ou de supplanter une ou plusieurs fonctions physiologiques d'un organe. Les dispositifs médicaux peuvent être conçus pour être ensemencés de manière exogène avec au moins des cellules spécifiques d'un organe. L'invention concerne également des procédés de fabrication et d'utilisation des dispositifs médicaux pour supplanter ou augmenter une ou plusieurs fonctions physiologiques d'un organe.
