Decellularized arterial tissue has shown promising use as a scaffold for vascular tissue replacement; similar structural and functional characteristics to the native tissue are maintained and these scaffolds are non-thrombogenic, non immunogenic with the ability to remodel and grow in vivo[1]. However, there still remains a number of limiting factors in clinically translating these scaffolds. Namely, producing a range of geometries to accommodate a large patient cohort within clinically feasible manufacturing times and costs. Furthermore, these scaffolds must be suitable for long term preservation to produce a reasonable shelf life and be capable of undergoing standard sterilization techniques.
