Repair and regeneration of musculoskeletal tissues is generating substantial interest within the biomedical community. Consequently, these are the most researched tissues from the regeneration point of view. Regenerative Engineering of Musculoskeletal Tissues and Interfaces presents information on the fundamentals, progress and recent developments related to the repair and regeneration of musculoskeletal tissues and interfaces. This comprehensive review looks at individual tissues as well as tissue interfaces. Early chapters cover various fundamentals of biomaterials and scaffolds, types of cells, growth factors, and mechanical forces, moving on to discuss tissue-engineering strategies for bone, tendon, ligament, cartilage, meniscus, and muscle, as well as progress and advances in tissue vascularization and nerve innervation of the individual tissues. Final chapters present information on musculoskeletal tissue interfaces. Comprehensive review of the repair and regeneration of musculoskeletal individual tissues and tissue interfaces Presents recent developments, fundamentals and progress in the field of engineering tissues Reviews progress and advances in tissue vascularization and innervationThe method of allograft fixation also presents a problem (Lee et al., 2008; Reckers et al., 2009; Sohn aamp; Toth, 2008). ... of foreign tissue, they have the potential to incite an immunological response that can damage the graft and joint (Jackson et al., 1993; Rodeo et al., 2000). ... But, perhaps the main drawback to using allograft tissue is the risk of disease transmission (Jackson et al., 1993; Rijk , 2004).
