Because damaged cartilage heals very slowly, researchers have developed synthetic scaffolds to help accelerate cartilage repair. These scaffolds (high magnification seen here) are interwoven, porous fibers that are seeded with cells. The scaffold mimics natural cartilage structure and helps support rapid cell growth, leading to faster tissue development.
