Biomaterial nerve cuffs are a clinical alternative to autografts and allografts as a means to repair segmental peripheral nerve defects. However, existing clinical biomaterial constructs lack true incorporation of physical guidance cues into their design. In both two- and three-dimensional systems, it is known that substrate geometry directly affects rates(More)
Volumetric muscle loss (VML) can result from trauma, infection, congenital anomalies, or surgery, and produce permanent functional and cosmetic deficits. There are no effective treatment options for VML injuries, and recent advances toward development of muscle constructs lack the ability to achieve innervation necessary for long-term function. We sought to(More)
