Recent advances in 3D bioprinting for the regeneration of functional cartilage

Written by Regenerative Medicine

In this Review, the authors review recent progress in the complete 3D printing process involved in functional cartilage regeneration and discuss the combination of 3D in vivo hybrid bioprinting with other regenerative medicine techniques. Keywords: biomaterial – bioprinting – cartilage – regeneration The field of regeneration for functional cartilage has progressed tremendously. Conventional approaches for regenerating the damaged tissue based on integrated manufacturing are limited by their inability to produce precise and customized biomimetic tissues. On the other hand, 3D bioprinting is a promising technique with increased versatility because it can co-deliver cells and biomaterials with proper compositions and spatial...
