ICYMI: Research Institute Produces Artificial Blood Vessel

Iran Polymer and Petrochemical Institute unveiled locally produced synthetic blood vessels and polymer wound dressings on Jan. 22.
According to Mehr News Agency, the institute will launch the commercial production of both the synthetic blood vessels and wound dressings in the near future.
Artificial blood vessels can be used in heart and kidney surgery and several other medical procedures. 
The polymer wound dressings are easier to use compared to traditional bandages and in some variations can speed up the healing process. Currently, both products are imported.
