Currently, The surgeons decision-making is based on visual inspection and manual probing of the cartilage tissue
which is highly subjective and of poor repeatability.
Some infections or injuries may also exacerbate the breakdown of cartilage tissue
Moreover, they do not have any effect on the degenerative process of cartilage tissue
Therapy with mesenchymal stem cells, the so-called progenitor cells of connective tissue, holds great promise for the regeneration of cartilage tissue
but how stem cell therapy contributes to the healing of damaged connective tissue has been unclear.
Although cartilage tissue
is mesenchymal in origin, it is thicker and more resistant to resorption and retraction than is temporal muscle fascia.
Among the topics are the self-assembling process and applications in tissue engineering, honing cell and tissue culture conditions for bone and cartilage tissue
engineering, the heart and great vessels, and tissue engineering functional gastrointestinal regions: the importance of stem and progenitor cells.
GOTHENBURG, Sweden, April 28, 2017 -- Researchers here at Sahlgrenska Academy have generated cartilage tissue
by printing stem cells using a 3D bioprinter.
Over the course of a few days, the team directed the modified stem cells to grow into cartilage cells and produce cartilage tissue
Cellulose is biocompatible [and] has been used in a wide variety of regenerative medicine applications, such as cartilage tissue
engineering, bone tissue engineering and wound healing,' the authors wrote in their paper.
Due to the aneural and avascular character of cartilage tissue
, OA and articular cartilage defects do not heal spontaneously and clinical intervention is required (Chu et al.
1) Functional repair of articular cartilage defects encountered a major challenge to cartilage tissue
Both menisectomy and simulated overweight substantially increased fluid pressures in the cell and cartilage tissue
during walking, but they did not have an effect on the cell shape or volume in healthy cartilage.
