Abstract

Tissue engineering is a multidisciplinary approach aimed at producing new organs and tissues for implantation in order to circumvent the limitations imposed by current techniques such as surgical tissue transfer. Structure begets function and highly ordered skeletal muscle (SkM) consists of elongated, multinucleate muscle cells (fibres) that are arranged in bundles surrounded by connective tissue sheaths. It is therefore of no surprise that tissue engineered SkM complexes are often designed around fibre containing scaffolds. This work is the natural continuation of strategies introduced at TCES 2002
