The use of autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI) and its further development combining autologous chondrocytes with bioresorbable matrices may represent a promising new technology for cartilage regeneration in orthopaedic research. Aim of our study was to evaluate the applicability of a resorbable three-dimensional polymer of pure polyglycolic acid (PGA) for the use in human cartilage tissue engineering under autologous conditions. Adult human chondrocytes were expanded in vitro using human… CONTINUE READING
