Minimally invasive synovium harvest for potential use in meniscal tissue engineering.


Tissue engineering is being investigated as a means for treating avascular meniscal injury or total meniscal loss in human and veterinary patients. The purpose of this study was to determine if an arthroscopic tissue shaver can be used to collect viable synoviocytes for in vitro culture during therapeutic stifle arthroscopy, with the long term goal of… (More)
