Formatted abstract
This article discusses the importance of the endothelium for successful vascular grafts derived from both native arteries and synthetic materials. It also discusses the fundamental strategies to endothelialize synthetic grafts in animal experiments and in the clinic, as well as the use of endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs), bone marrow-derived cells, and mesothelium as endothelial substitutes.
