Tissue-engineered cartilage constructs using composite hyaluronic acid/collagen I hydrogels and designed poly(propylene fumarate) scaffolds.

Abstract

Our approach to cartilage tissue-engineering scaffolds combines image-based design and solid free-form (SFF) fabrication to create load-bearing constructs with user-defined parameters. In this study, 3-dimensional scaffolds with cubic and ellipsoidal pore architecture were fabricated using poly(propylene fumarate) (PPF). To increase seeding efficiency and… (More)
