Abstract:

Presented herein is a method to prepare tubes of modified bacterial cellulose immediately in the course of biosynthesis conducted with Acetobacter sp. The biosynthesis was carried out under both static and dynamic conditions. The material of the tubes obtained was tested and assessed with respect to its structural, physical-mechanical and biological properties, as well as its chemical purity. The testing witnessed a high biocompatibility of the modified bacterial cellulose, essential for the material in blood vessel prostheses. It was found that the mechanical properties of the tubes can be improved by applying a polyester plaited carrier in the course of the dynamic synthesis of the modified cellulose.

Tags: modified cellulose, biosynthesis, vascular prostheses.
