Topic:

Principles for In Vivo Cardiovascular Tissue Engineering

If it is assumed that nothing works like the real thing then tissue engineering offers us the way toward tissue and organ replacement. Combining all the factors necessary to accomplish this is a daunting task as demonstrated by the myriad of studies and billions of dollars put toward this end. Perhaps the designs in nature offer us some clues that will accelerate our progress. By adhering to certain principles we can regenerate many kinds of tissues including those within the cardiovascular system. In this presentation principles of regeneration with be revealed that give us direction for creating new tissues to replaced damaged or defective ones. This in vivo regeneration provides a cost effective and practical approach to the restoration of normal and functional tissues.

Biography:

As a Cardiothoracic surgeon and distinguished pioneer of minimally invasive cardiac surgical procedures, Dr. Matheny has worked with ECM materials for cardiovascular applications since 1993. He is a co-inventor on several ECM patents and did his undergraduate studies at the University of Oklahoma and Baylor University. Dr. Matheny completed his MD at the University of Texas and completed his cardiothoracic fellowship at Ohio State University. He is certified by the American Board of Surgery and the American Board of Thoracic Surgery and is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. Dr. Matheny worked with a number of medical device companies including CardioThoracic Systems, Medtronic, Embolex, Amed Systems, Guidant, AFx and Corazon.
