Tissue engineering (TE) and related therapeutic strategies, that also act as standard tool for transformation and regeneration, have been studied in vast details. The in depth knowledge and vast application has been the cause by which GFs have been widely applied for treatment of different injuries in orthopedics but also in cardiovascular grafting and tissue sciences related areas. In a body injury, platelets participate in the natural healing process, being responsible for hemostasis and releasing of bio proteins or GFs that are crucial to the wound-healing process. Platelet enriched plasma can be harvested from patients own peripheral blood and after concentration it becomes ready to be administered at the injury site.
Biodegradable biomaterials have also been processed as scaffolds and tissue membranes as these systems can act as drug delivery carriers and also acts a reservoir for new pluripotent cells.
A variety of polymer and biomaterials are being into used that are being widely used for tissue repairments such as chondroitin injuries as these tissues take some time to heal and also are very susceptible to hydrolysis. Tissue Engineering and Bone Damages: Tzella Guer
