Effects of Mechanical Stimulation on the Biomechanics of Stem Cell - Collagen Sponge Constructs for Patellar Tendon Repair

  • Published 2005


Introduction. Tendons (rotator cuff, Achilles and patellar tendons) are among the most commonly injured soft tissues [1]. Many repairs/reconstructions have been attempted (e.g. sutures, resorbable biomaterials, autografts, and allografts) with varying success. A tissue engineered repair using mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) is attractive [25] but tissue… (More)
