Cardiovascular diseases are among the leading causes of death worldwide. Tissue engineering and regenerative medicine have emerged as potential solutions for many cardiovascular diseases such as development of implantable tissue engineered vascular grafts for bypass heart surgeries and regeneration of cardiac tissue after tissue-damage or tissue-death resulting from cardiac arrests. A major obstacle for the widespread use of tissue engineering in clinical applications is the lack of suitable biomaterials with required combination of biomechanical and biological properties. Photocrosslinkable mcro-porous hydrogels and electrospun nano-microfiber scaffolds have been widely investigated for application in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. This talk will present some interesting results from our recent studies on potential applications of Photocrosslinkable methacrylated gelatin hydrogel and electrospun-airjet-sprayed composite scaffolds in cardiovascular tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.
