Biomaterials for Cardiovascular Regeneration

Timeslot: Thursday, April 4, 2019 - 10:30am to 12:30pm
Track: Cardiovascular Biomaterials
Room: Yakima 2


To develop new treatment strategies for cardiovascular diseases, some of the challenges include vascularization of synthetic tissues, renewable cell sources, biomaterials that have similar features to the native cardiovascular tissues, and efficacy in preclinical models. In this session, we will cover topics ranging from emerging biomaterials, injectable hydrogels, strategies of vascularization of engineered constructs, and advances in cardiovascular tissue engineering that have shown progress into clinical translation. Topics of interest include vascular grafts, valves, cardiac patches, and stem cell therapeutics.

Guided Tissue Regeneration

Timeslot: Thursday, April 4, 2019 - 10:30am to 12:30pm
Track: Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine
Room: Chelan 2


Guided bone/guided tissue regeneration, GBR/GTR, strategies are widely used in dental/craniofacial repair/reconstruction to enhance bone healing/formation for implant therapies. GBR/GTR membranes work primarily by acting as a barrier to prevent invasion of soft tissue into regenerating bone grafted sites. While current membranes act primarily in a passive manner, new and developing membranes are providing adjunctive bioactive activities to stimulate healing, bone formation and or infection. Because of the success of GBR/GTR membranes in dental/craniofacial applications, they are being explored for use in large orthopedic defects, neuro-regeneration, and in other soft tissue repair strategies. Session will provide an overview of the clinical use and performance of GBR/GTR membranes in dental/craniofacial repair as well as focus on advances in GBR/GTR membrane strategies in tissue healing and regeneration.
