Abstract:

One of the novel technologies for vascular prosthesis design is melt electrospinning. The  solvent–free approach allows to model electrospinning without the complications associated with solvent evaporation or the risk of a potential adverse, toxic reaction, both local and systemic. However, many tissue-engineers wish to combine various cells and electrospun material for clinical use. Preliminary research of flat fibrous structures made by melt electrospinning and the processing influence of parameters on the resulting fibre properties was performed. Surface analysis of planar structures by Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and determination of the fiber diameter using SEM microphotographs and Lucia G software were realised.
