The Application of Tissue Engineering Cartilage and Bracket Constructed Biomaterials for Athletic Injury


Article Preview

The development of tissue engineering techniques for cartilage repair and regeneration provided a new way, according to their own characteristics and structure of the cartilage, as artificial cartilage replacement materials and scaffold materials should have good biomechanical properties. The effect of autologous cartilage transplantation is best in the field of articular cartilage repair, the study of bone marrow stromal cells in vitro tests and animal experiments was more, and the clinical application was less, which is still in the stage of exploration. Biomaterials material for tissue repair plays a more and more important role, especially in athletic injury.
