A biological scaffold is a matrix derived from naturally ocurring tissues upon which cells can grow to replace damaged ones.


Preparation of the scaffold tissue

From harvested tissues the biological scaffold is manufactured by removing the native cells but retaining the structural and functional matrix, which is  then re-seeded with new cells.


Meniscus replacement

Replacing damaged meniscus tissue with a graft or a scaffold.
