Mechanical characterization, gene expression, and biosynthesis of the porcine TMJ disc for the purposes of tissue engineering
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) may be permanently damaged by disease or trauma; thus, TMJ cartilage is a prime target for tissue engineers. The damaged TMJ disc may become obstructive to normal jaw function, leading to ...
Mechanical stimulation towards tissue engineering of the knee meniscus
Tissue engineering has been proposed to alleviate injury to the knee meniscus, which leads to loss of function and damage to the surrounding articular cartilage. Relatively few studies have been performed to tissue engineer ...
