About this book

Introduction

This book offers readers a comprehensive biomaterials-based approach to achieving clinically successful, functionally integrated vasculogenesis and myogenesis in the heart. Coverage is multidisciplinary, including the role of extracellular matrices in cardiac development, whole-heart tissue engineering, imaging the mechanisms and effects of biomaterial-based cardiac regeneration, and autologous bioengineered heart valves. Bringing current knowledge together into a single volume, this book provides a compendium to students and new researchers in the field and constitutes a platform to allow for future developments and collaborative approaches in biomaterials-based regenerative medicine, even beyond cardiac applications.

This book also:

  • Provides a valuable overview of the engineering of biomaterials for cardiac regeneration, including coverage of combined biomaterials and stem cells, as well as extracellular matrices
  • Presents readers with multidisciplinary coverage of biomaterials for cardiac repair, including the role of extracellular matrix in cardiac development, whole-heart tissue engineering, and spatial and electrical factors regulating cardiac regeneration and assembly
  • Provides a platform to allow for future developments and collaborative approaches in biomaterials-based regenerative medicine
