Nanotech Leads to Artifical Artery

Digitpedia.com:
Early this year human trials of an artificial artery will begin. The hope is that this new creation could reduce amputations and heart attacks, potentially saving many lifes of patients with vascular diseases.

British scientists at London’s Royal Free Hospital have used nanotechnology to create the artificial artery made out of a polymer material. This material means the artery can imitate the natural pulsing of blood vessels.
