Artificial artery using nanotechnology developed

Abstract:
A new artificial artery made from a polymer that is flexible enough to function like a real blood vessel has been developed by British scientists.

The artery looks like a short piece of spaghetti, and the research team from University College London claims that it can help in reducing chances of a heart attack during bypass surgery.

Professor George Hamilton from the Royal Free Hospital in North-West London said, "The new graft pulses rhythmically to match the beat of the heart. The graft material is strong, flexible, resistant to blood clotting and doesn't break down, which is a major breakthrough."
