Engineering auxetic cylinders and intestine to improve longitudinal intestinal lengthening and tailoring procedure (2022)
Journal Article
Valentini, L., Chiesa, I., De Maria, C., Ugolini, S., Volpe, Y., Mussi, E., …Morabito, A. (2022). Engineering auxetic cylinders and intestine to improve longitudinal intestinal lengthening and tailoring procedure. Bioengineering, 9(11), https://doi.org/10.3390/bioengineering9110658

Auxetic materials can be exploited for coupling different types of tissues. Herein, we designed a material where the microorganism metabolic activity yields the formation of buckled/collapsed bubbles within gelling silicone cylinders thus providing a...
