BACKGROUND Resorbable electrospun polycaprolactone (PCL) scaffolds for tissue reconstruction can provide physicians with an "off the shelf" product tailored to the patient's specific tissue architecture. However, many tissue-engineering platforms do not possess the necessary long-term mechanical stability needed to properly support tissue development… CONTINUE READING
