The lack of suitable scaffolding materials and viable scaffold design is challenging the success of tissue engineering. In the present study, we developed a new scaffolding strategy using a secondary porogen, poly(ethylene glycol) dimethyl ether along with sieved salts based on traditional salt-leaching method. This new scaffolding technology could allow us to fabricate nano- featured highly interconnective macroporous biodegradable elastic scaffolds based on a newly developed crosslinked poly(l,8-octanediol citrate) (POC) for cardiovascular tissue engineering.
