Harvesting autologous tenocytes for tendon engineering may cause secondary tendon defect at the donor site. Dermal fibroblasts are an easily accessible cell source and do not cause major donor site defect. This study aims to explore the possibility of tendon engineering using dermal fibroblasts. A total of 45 hybrid pigs were randomly divided into three groups: experimental group (n = 15)--repair of tendon defect with a dermal fibroblast engineered tendon; control group 1 (n = 15)--repair of… CONTINUE READING
