Background: Cartilage injury has always been puzzled for clinicians. The treatments used
clinically for cartilage injury usually bring about fibrocartilage. The emergence of tissue engineering
lights up the hope of cartilage repair.
Objective: This review will sum up the existing learnings about electrospun fibers, revolving about the
electrospinning materials, micromorphology, improvements and electrospun technologies newly developed
in cartilage repair and regeneration.
Results: Electrospun fibers as scaffolds for cartilage regeneration have been one of researching hotspots
for years. The studies about new electrospun materials and new electrospinning technologies
greatly promoted the development of this field.
Conclusion: Electrospun fibers have showed great potential in cartilage regeneration. But there is still
a long way to go before clinical application. The material embellishment and structure imitation should
be highlighted in future.
