What is new in mechanical properties of tissue-engineered organs

Abstract: Tissue engineering is a promising new field based on expertise in cell biology, medicine and mechanical engineering. It raises exciting hopes of producing autologous tissue substitutes to replace altered organs. This challenge involves highly specialized technology in order to provide the proper shape to the tissue and promote the maintenance of its native physiological properties. Primary cell populations may lose some of their functional and morphological properties in vitro in the absence of a proper environment. In order to maintain cell integrity, a three-dimensional matrix that mimics the in vivo environment as closely as possible was developed, according to the type of tissue produced [1, 5, 18, 26, 27, 29, 34, 35].
