Electrospinning for cardiovascular disease

Aortyx 1 e1622645586610UK-based Electrospinning is supporting Aortyx to develop an endovascular patch that has the potential to treat aortic dissection, a life-threatening cardiovascular disease in which the inner layer of the aorta tears, allowing blood to enter via the tear.

This causes the intima and media layers of the aorta to separate (dissect), resulting in a false lumen.
