Abstract

Despite technical advances in suture methods and rehabilitation protocols, challenges remain in the field of flexor tendon repair. This article reviews the state-of-the-art research in the tissue engineering of flexor tendons. These early published data will hopefully lay the foundation for molecular methods and materials that can be used to reconstruct tendons to restore normal form and function in the hand.
