  • Cartilage implants

    Hello Biomch-L subscribers,

    My name is Mike Anderson, I am a graduate student in Bioengineering at the
    University of Utah. I am currently searching the literature trying to
    learn more about the current state-of-the-art in cartilage tissue
    implants. What I mean by that is that cartilage cells are grown using one
    of several tissue engineering techniques, and then injected/implanted into
    the site of a cartilage tear/injury. The meniscus is usually the location
    of implantation. I am searching for references that list the mechanical
    properties that would be desired in the "ideal" cartilage implant. I'm
    aware that different types of cartilage have different mechanical
    properties, and there may not be a straightforward answer to my question,
    but if anyone could refer me to some papers that I may have missed on this
    subject, I would appreciate it.

    Thank you,

    Mike Anderson
