The major aim of this experimental study was the improvement of hemo- and biocompatibility of microvascular allografts. Comparison of polyurethane and ePTFE (expanded polytetrafluoroethene) micrografts did not show a significant advantage of the new material polyurethane. When the endothelial cell seeding method was applied, endothelial cell harvesting from rat fat proved to be very difficult. Therefore, further research on microvessel endothelial cell seeding is planned.
