Abstract

The targeted use of glycolation in the fabrication of tissue-equivalents was explored. Tissue-equivalent tubes used in this study were fabricated by allowing compaction to occur around a nonadhesive mandrel. Significant increases in stiffness, strength and resistance to collagenolytic degradation were achieved.
