Tissue-engineered tendon scaffolds have the potential to significantly improve the treatment of tendon and ligament injuries, especially those associated with tumors, trauma, and congenital deficiencies where autograft or allograft tissue might not be available in sufficient quantity for reconstruction. In this study, a tendon scaffold was produced that: (1) has decreased/absent cellular material histologically, as well as significantly decreased DNA content in comparison with the material it… CONTINUE READING
