Paper Title:
A Knitted Scaffold for Tendon Engineering Using Poly (Lactic Acid) Fibers
  Abstract

A tubal knitted scaffold fabricated from poly(lactic acid) (PLA) yarns was given in this work. The performance of the scaffold during degradation in vitro and the morphology of the scaffold with cells (monkey dermal fibroblasts) were examined. The scaffold fabricated from poly(glycolic acid) (PGA) yarns was manufactured as the control. Results showed that the PLA scaffold could keep much more tensile strength during degradation in vitro, compared with the PGA scaffold. However, cell attachment and proliferation on the PGA scaffold were better than on the PLA scaffold.
