Maybe someday a replacement vein?/ BBC article

The new artificial artery has been designed to mimic the natural version as closely as possible.
It is strong, flexible, resistant to blood clotting and pulses rhythmically to match the beat of the heart.
Using nanotechnology, the researchers incorporated specific microscopic molecules into the graft.
Some aid circulation, while others encourage specialised stem cells to coat its lining, boosting its ability to repair damaged blood vessels still further.

Another intesting research article

whyRwehere,

Great article, whyRwehere, lets hope they can make the transition to veins from arteries. Would'nt that be something if we could avoid stents in the near future for CCSVI. Maybe that would help to avoid the shoulder pain some of our pioneers experienced with stents.

On another quirky fun side, pull up:

and place Albert's picture next to George's for a smile. Could they be distantly related, lol.

I'm not sure that they look that much alike, but I'm sure Professor Hamilton would take that as a compliment...I think.

Near?!?!?!?!

Speaking of geological time, near would be no more than a couple of million years. If I take into account what my neurologist suggested, (that I should be alright in a couple of months) it seems that medical time is even slower than the geological.

My opinion is that if everything goes well, we could have artificial arteries within the Holocene period, soon before London reaches the equator.

Hi all,

Here's a link from Tazma from another tread on another artificial artery that is being developed.

heyas :) FYI if anyone wants to know, here's one easy way you can shorten your links so that they don't bump out the page width

(i will put the odd space in there so that the lines wrap and also so that it doesn't hide the relevant tags from you)

ok here goes (you can see two ways to do this if you mouse over the URL* button top right):

[ url=http://url ] URL text [ /url ]

so, in this case, it could be done as:

[ url = http://www.themedguru.com /20100103/newsfeature /artificial-artery-using-nanotechnology-developed- 86131683.html ] Artificial artery using nanotechnology developed [ / url ]

which appears like this when spaces are removed:
Artificial artery using nanotechnology developed

and if you want to make it look more 'link' like you could add before and after tags for colour [ color=red ] URL text [ /color ] or underline [ u ] URL text [ /u ], like so:
Artificial artery using nanotechnology developed

HTH,
JL

Thanks Jimmylegs,
I always wanted to know how to do that, without having to go anywhere else...yay.
