Abstract: The growth of cultured calf aortic smooth muscle cells on cardiovascular biomaterials was investigated, using native and oxidized polyacrylonitrile (orlon) fabrics, dacron velour, and Parylene-C coated polypropylene microfabric as substrates. By light microscopic evaluation, surface cell coverage was most complete on microfabric, followed by native orlon, dacron velour, and oxidized orlon. Native orlon supported the greatest total cell growth, as determined by chemically extractable protein, followed by oxidiz…
