Ligament Tissue Engineering and Its Potential Role in Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction

Article, Review English OPEN
Yates, E. W.; Rupani, A.; Foley, G. T.; Khan, W. S.; Cartmell, S.; Anand, S. J.;

Tissue engineering is an emerging discipline that combines the principle of science and engineering. It offers an unlimited source of natural tissue substitutes and by using appropriate cells, biomimetic scaffolds, and advanced bioreactors, it is possible that tissue en... View more
