Bioreactor and scaffold design for the mechanical stimulation of silk based anterior cruciate ligament grafts

Abstract

A biore actor for the mechanical stimulation of silk based scaffolds has been developed. The bi oreactor simulates the natural movement of the anterior cruciate ligament by applying a biaxial movement on the scaffold. The silk scaffolds are prepared in a way that mimicks the mechanical properties (strength, stiffness) of natural anterior cruciate ligaments… (More)
