Abstract : Articular cartilage lesion often results from trauma or diseases and is a major contributor to the onset of debilitating diseases such as osteoarthritis. Current repair strategies for chondral and osteochondral defects even though can improve the quality of the life of patients for short duration has significant disadvantages. Tissue engineering is emerging as a potential alternative strategy to support the regeneration of articular cartilage. The chapter presents a brief discussion of the structure of articular cartilage and the various biomaterials currently been considered for cartilage tissue regeneration. © 2015 Elsevier Ltd.
