Improving Offset Electrospinning for the Tendon-Bone Junction

Approximately 2 million Americans experience a torn rotator cuff each year. The healthy rotator cuff is a complex tissue consisting of opposing biochemical gradients. This research aids the advancements of rotator cuff tear repairs by creating an improved resolution of a chemical gradient scaffold that mimics innate chemical properties of the tendon-bone junction. Moreover, this research shows the development of a novel technique based on magnetic offset electrospinning to create nanofibrous templates for regenerating tissue. In turn, this will help the recovery process of a tendon-bone injury while ensuring the proper anatomical structure.
