Abstract

Tissue engineering is a promising method to treat damaged cartilage. So far it has not been possible to create tissue-engineered cartilage with an appropriate structural organization. It is envisaged that cartilage tissue engineering will significantly benefit from knowledge of how the collagen fiber orientation is directed by mechanical conditions. The goal of the present study is to evaluate whether a collagen remodeling algorithm based on mechanical loading can be corroborated by the collagen orientation in healthy cartilage.
