Nature is an exceptional inspirational source and, in fact, only nature has produced tissues capable of lasting for a lifetime in the majority of humans. Therefore, the strategy of closely mimicking the complexity of natural designs seems the way to go to develop functional replacements. The TeXlastins project embodies a bio-inspired approach that merges insights from materials science, tissue engineering, and biomedicine. The biomimetic cardiovascular implants produced in the frame of this project are expected to provide significant advances in the field and lead to a new generation of clinically relevant replacements.
