Title:
In vitro and in vivo cartilage engineering using a combination of chondrocyte-seeded long-term stable fibrin gels and polycaprolactone-based polyurethane scaffolds. 
Abstract:
The use of either a hydrogel or a solid polymeric scaffold alone is often associated with distinct drawbacks in many tissue engineering applications. Therefore, in this study, we investigated the potential of a combination of long-term stable fibrin gels and polyurethane scaffolds for cartilage engineering. Primary bovine chondrocytes were suspended in fibrin gel and subsequently injected into a polycaprolactone-based polyurethane scaffold. Cells were homogeneously distributed within this compos...    »
