Bioengineering Human Scaffold-free Cartilage Constructs Using Paediatric Auricular Tissue

Abstract

Currently, patients with external ear deformities rely on hyaline cartilage grafts or silicone prosthesis to provide them with adequate external ear reconstruction. Scaffold-free auricular tissue engineering provides a means of creating patient specific cartilage constructs solely using their own cells, ensuring biocompatibility, long term stability, and… (More)
