Sandmann A2 - Thomas Tischer ED1 - Daniel Eberli Y1 - 2010-03-01 PY - 2010 T1 - Tissue Engineering of the Anterior Cruciate Ligament and Meniscus Using Acellularized Scaffolds N2 - The Tissue Engineering approach has major advantages over traditional organ transplantation and circumvents the problem of organ shortage. Tissues that closely match the patient’s needs can be reconstructed from readily available biopsies and subsequently be implanted with minimal or no immunogenicity. This eventually conquers several limitations encountered in tissue transplantation approaches. This book serves as a good starting point for anyone interested in the application of Tissue Engineering. It offers a colorful mix of topics, which explain the obstacles and possible solutions for TE applications.
