The first bypass with cultured cells was installed

For this purpose, they were previously grown in the laboratory for cells and tissues of the Floridsdorf clinic

At the Floridsdorf Clinic in Vienna, a patient with a diagnosis of the peripheral arterial disease had a bypass placed on his leg, lined with endothelial cells from his tissue in order to reduce the risk of a new arterial blockage. Endothelial cells are cells that are located on the inner surface of blood vessels and are in direct contact with the blood.

For this purpose, they were previously grown in the laboratory for cells and tissues of the Floridsdorf clinic, for which a 4-centimeter piece of vein from the upper arm was taken from the patient. 30,000 isolated cells were propagated to 30 million in three weeks in the laboratory. They are coated with a 70-centimeter-long implant on the patient’s leg. The patient was discharged from the hospital after three days when he could already walk again.

This type of surgery is possible thanks to a new laboratory at the Floridsdorf clinic, the only one of its kind in eastern Austria. The laboratory produces cells and tissues for clinical use according to the GMP standard (good manifesting practice). The Floridsdroff Clinic is one of the eight clinics of the Vienna Association of Health Institutions, which perform 150,000 surgeries a year and take care of 292,000 patients.
