Linnea Tscheuschner, Abraham R. Tzafriri. Cardiovascular Tissue Engineering Models for Atherosclerosis Treatment Development. In the early years of tissue engineering, scientists focused on the generation of healthy-like tissues and organs to replace diseased tissue areas with the aim of filling the gap between organ demands and actual organ donations. Over time, the realization has set […]
DECODE 1st Workshop Recent advances on experimental analysis on DCBs On October 5-6, 2023 the DECODE consortium held its first Workshop. Throughout these two days, specialists in the field engaged in topics such as: Drug properties and available coating process based on DCB requirements, Prototypes of drug/material evaluation, Analytical methods to characterize drug / material […]
Stratakos E, Antonini L, Poletti G, Berti F, Tzafriri AR, Petrini L, Pennati G. Investigating Balloon-Vessel Contact Pressure Patterns in Angioplasty: In Silico Insights for Drug-Coated Balloons. Drug-coated balloons have shown promising results as a minimally invasive approach to treat stenotic arteries, but recent animal studies have revealed limited, non-uniform coating transfer onto the arterial […]
