Artificial blood vessels developed in the lab can grow with the recipient

Biomedical engineers, artificial blood vessels bioengineered in the lab and implanted in young lambs are capable of growth within the recipient, a groundbreaking new study demonstrates. If confirmed in humans, these new vessel grafts would prevent the need for repeated surgeries in some children with congenital heart defects.
