Abstract

We describe a mold to fabricate multileaflet `valve-equivalents' based on the tissue-equivalent approach of entrapping tissue cells in a self-assembled biopolymer scaffold which the cells compact. The mold design results in leaflet structures possessing circumferential alignment characteristic of native leaflets. We report on the geometry, alignment, and mechanical properties for the valve-equivalent leaflets.
