We investigated the effect of low temperatures on pig.s arterial vessels at creation of acellular xenogeneic vascular scaffolds. It was observed partial decellularization of endothelium layer, structure changing of connective tissue`s fibers and preservation of mechanical properties of vessels in a group of frozen-thawed arteries.
Key words: vascular grafts, scaffolds, bioengineering, decellularization.
