Two different approaches can be followed in muscle tissue engineering: implantation of in vitro cultured polymer scaffolds, specifically designed to promote cellular orientation (e.g. micropatterned surfaces), or in vivo delivering of cells to the site of action by use of biodegradable carriers (e.g. microcapsules). Both strategies are currently developed(More)
A novel functionally-graded hybrid (FGHY) scaffold was designed and developed with a load-bearing structure represented by a PU foam loaded with a graded composition of CaPs (biomimetic component) and pectin gel as cell carrier. hPDC populations encapsulated in pectin gels and injected into the FGHY scaffolds demonstrated the ability to differentiate toward(More)
