Treatment of anoxic tissue with angiogenesis-inducing implants

Treatment of anoxic tissue with angiogenesis-inducing implants

Official Gazette of the United States Patent & Trademark Office Patents 1254(5), Jan 29

A method and implantable device for treating anoxic tissue. A substrate supporting an angiogenesis factor in an amount for treating anoxic tissue is implanted so as to promote revascularization of the tissue. The substrate is a physiologically compatible polymer and may have different configurations such as a fiber, a filament, a microsphere, a needle or a pin. The implantable device may be transported through a catheter or implanted directly in the anoxic tissue. The anoxic tissue may be heart, eye, brain, brain stem, spinal cord, bone and combinations of tissues.
