DBL Functional tissue repair

Course

Description

The thoracic and abdomic/pelvic cavities are covered by serous membranes. Upon operation of one of the underlying organs, the membranes have to be opened and closed, which may cause scar tissue formation and adhesions resulting in a loss of function. As a solution, synthetic materials can be used as patch material to replace the damaged tissue. In this course, students will work on the development of a synthetic fiber-reinforced material for the functional repair of a serous membrane.
