Skeletal muscle tissue engineering

D. Klumpp, R.E. Horch and J.P. Beier,    University Hospital of Erlangen, Germany

Abstract:

Engineering functional skeletal muscle tissue is still a challenge, in particular in clinically relevant sizes. The development of a suitable scaffold for muscle tissue engineering in vivo remains a major obstacle. Materials and different architectures used for engineering skeletal muscle are presented here and experiences with electrospun scaffolds are highlighted. Characteristic demands of skeletal muscle tissue on a suitable scaffold including the necessary vascularization of implanted scaffolds and potential factors for myogenic differentiation are described and critically discussed. Finally, the options for future ...
