Abstract
Limited angiogenesis and epithelialization make urethral regeneration using conventional tissue-engineered grafts a great challenge. Consequently, inspired from the native urethra, bacterial cellulose (BC) and bladder acellular matrix (BAM) were combined to design a three dimensional (3D) biomimetic scaffold. The developed BC/BAM scaffold was engineered for accelerating urethral regeneration by enhancing angiogenesis and epithelialization. The...
