Bacterial bionanocellulose for heart valve tissue engineering – current status, progress and perspectives

  1. Developing 3D geometry of entire valve using controlled deposition of cellulose on the mandrel.

My plan is to cultivate the bacteria in such way, that at the end a readily heart valve will be obtained. The growth medium (or one of its constituents) should be formed appropriately. The bacteria will than produce cellulose, but only in the provided shape.

Advanced geometrical Ca- alginate structures were already obtained by me in similar manner (fig.1.).
