The article cites a study which undertook the production of a silicone microvascular prosthesis, based on the Replamineform principle and its evaluation as a microvascular replacement in the rat abdominal aorta. The replamineform process, that is, replicated life forms, is a technique for the duplication of the microstructure of carbonate skeletal components in ceramics, metal, or as in this study, polymer materials. The success rate of microvessel reconstruction is markedly increased when a clean cut has occurred as compared to clinical cases where the anatomical situation necessitates replacement of an existing microvascular defect.
