Abstract We will present four different cardiovascular problems that all were stated by vascular surgeons. We addressed them using highly diverse mathematical "approaches" and suggest "solutions". Various knitting techniques was used to make textile prototypes of three of the solutions. The fourth one is a very old problem about wound healing and unfortunately still a bit open.
