  • &NA; This study evaluates the feasibility of growing tissue‐engineered cartilage in the shape of a human ear using chondrocytes seeded onto a synthetic biodegradable polymer fashioned in the shape of a 3‐year‐old child's auricle. A polymer template was formed in the shape of a human auricle using a nonwoven mesh of polyglycolic acid molded after being immersed in a 1% solution of polylactic acid. Each polyglycolic acid‐polylactic acid template was seeded with chondrocytes isolated from bovine… CONTINUE READING
