Clinical Use of the Meniscal Scaffold

In the past few years, meniscal scaffolds, designed with tissue engineering techniques have been proposed to treat the meniscus-deficient knee to improve joint function and possibly delay arthritis. These scaffolds are structures designed with porous gaps of specific size and orientation, and its biomechanical characteristics and stiffness protect excess.
loading during normal joint function and also promote tissue regeneration. Different types are being studied, but only two acellular scaffolds are currently in use in clinical practice.
