Articular cartilage biomechanics, mechanobiology, and tissue engineering

Abstract

Tissue engineering is a promising solution to address articular cartilage pathology. The creation of strategies for functional replacement of diseased cartilage relies heavily on the knowledge of the physiology and development of articular cartilage, especially in terms of the influence of biomechanical forces on the tissue. This review will present the current knowledge of biomechanical structure-function relationships of native articular cartilage, and synthesize this knowledge with strategies to engineer the tissue in vitro.
