Abstract

This paper reports the fabrication of nanofiber scaffolds with dual gradients in both mineral content and fiber orientation, which can be used to mimic the composition and collagen fiber organization at native tendon-to-bone insertion site. Such scaffolds show great potential for rotator cuff injury repair.
