Zapata-Linares, N. M. (Natalia María) | 2014-05-08
The currently available methods for tissue repair have not been able to restore completely functional cartilage tissue. For this reason, tissue engineering has developed strategies for fabricating cartilage substitutes in order to offer therapeutic solutions to patients that could suffer from any kind of cartilage disease. The purpose of this article was to review the anatomy, histology, physiology, pathology of cartilage, and the therapies commonly used for repairing this tissue. This article also shows the role established by tissue engineering and biomaterials in this field.
