Summary Tissue response influences the effectiveness of the bioelectric implants. The aim of this project is to evaluate the Acute and chronic histological, macroscopic changes due to endovascular electrical stimulation to the surrounding blood vessels.
Tissue responses to stentrode implantation and endovascular stimulation influences the function and effectiveness of the stentrode. In particular, endovascular stimulation can result in both acute and chronic tissue response. However, little is known about the acute and chronic effects of implantation and stimulation on the surrounding blood vessel. It is therefore important to quantify the histological, macroscopic and functional changes that can occur as a result of both stentrode implantation and active electrical stimulation. This project aims to evaluate the acute and chronic tissue responses to endovascular stimulation.
