Design of innovative prostheses for tracheal transplantation

Please note that the job is no longer active!

Tracheal circumferential defects involving more than the half of the tracheal wall still represent an unresolved problem. Biological or artificial prosthetic devices still show critical issues as biocompatibility, post-transplant ischemia and structural organ collapse. Despite few successful cases, most of the therapeutic solutions have post-op sequelae that sometimes reduce life expectancy of the patients. This research project deals with the development of an innovative prosthesis that could significantly improve the long term outcomes of the surgical treatment of tracheal transplantation.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
