Investigation of Micropunching Holes in Articular Cartilage for Applications in Tissue Engineering.

Vandenberg, Theodore.

Abstract: Articular cartilage degeneration is a central pathological feature of osteoarthritis. Cartilage in the adult does not regenerate in vivo and, as a result, cartilage damage in osteoarthritis is irreversible. With our ever-aging population, osteoarthritis has become a leading cause of disability and unfortunately, no optimal treatments for osteoarthritis are currently available. To address... read more
