Tissue-engineered cartilage as a graft source for laryngotracheal reconstruction: a pig model.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To evaluate the feasibility of using tissue-engineered cartilage for laryngotracheal reconstruction in the pig model. DESIGN Auricular cartilage was harvested from 3 young swine. The cartilage was digested, processed, and suspended and a cell culture was obtained. The cells were then suspended in 3 mL of a 30% solution of a biodegradable polymer… (More)
