Macroporous hydrogels as vascularizable soft tissue â implant interfaces: materials characterizat
Implantable medical devices, such as biosensors and implantable drug delivery systems, function optimally when rapid solute exchange can occur between implant and surrounding tissue. However, almost all materials implanted into the body are encapsulated in a fibrous layer that prevents this rapid communication. Macroporous materials are known to change this response by allowing vascularized tissue ingrowth, however many questions still exist as to the role material properties play. In this work,
