Morgan’s paper on vascular graft for the treatment of CAD and CCD is published!

Morgan’s work on improving surgical practices and reducing the number of surgeries for patients suffering from Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) and Congenital Cardiovascular Defects (CCD) led to the creation of a rapidly producible; small-diameter vascular graft. The natural graft can be produced in less than one week, dissolves as healthy tissue grows in its place, and can withstand the continuous contraction and relaxation cycle that the beating heart puts on arteries and veins.
