Abstract

A new artificial connective matrix which results from two reactions of fibrinogen and fibronectin on elastin was used to obturate a slit made in the abdominal aorta of rabbit. The so-called Elastin—Fibrin biomaterial behaved as a scaffold through which all the different structures were restored to their former condition. At 3 months, the material had disappeared and no thrombus, no inflammation or reject had been detected.
