In this study, we harnessed the ability of pentagalloyl glucose to repair enzymatically degraded porcine arteries. This polyphenolic compound assisted in the cross-linking of the hydrophobic regions of the arterial fibers and helped restore the aorta's structural integrity in vitro. We performed biaxial mechanical testing of porcine arterial tissues and found that this compound was able to improve the biomechanical characteristics of specimens that underwent enzymatic digestion. These findings were also supported by our finite element modeling and microstructural analyses. View this paper.
