Tissue engineering of the meniscus.

Polyurethane scaffolds with optimal mechanical properties and with optimal interconnective macro-porosity have been shown to facilitate ingrowth and differentiation of tissue into fibro-cartilage. However, even these materials cannot prevent cartilage degeneration in animal models. Surface modification and/or seeding of cells into the scaffolds before implantation may offer a solution for this problem in the future.
