On-demand heart valve manufacturing using focused rotary jet spinning

Current valve manufacturing technologies struggle to create valves that facilitate native tissue remodeling for permanent replacements. FibraValve samples were sutured onto 28 mm nitinol stents and positioned into custom made holders for mounting in a pulse duplicator (ViVitro Labs, Victoria, BC, Canada). Here, we show that FRJS can serve as a biofabrication method for implantable heart valves.
