In this study, the porous silk fibroin film (PSFF) is implanted into the body of a rat. Ten days later, the growing state of the capillaries in the material was observed, and the growing law of the capillaries in porous material is discussed to better understand the growing state of the peripheral tissue and cells around the material. The fact that the PSFF creates a beneficial environment for the growth of the capillaries in the tissue is confirmed, and the good growing states of the new skeleton muscle and the hypodermal tissue are also observed. This provides basic experimental results for the design of the PSFFs, which is a new medical biomaterial.
