Abstract

This study evaluated a tendon substitute model. Tenocytes were isolated from pig Achilles tendon, seeded onto scaffolds (Opocrin 2%, Typeone 3% and Symatese 2%) and studied by histology, immunofluorescence for collagen type 1 and 3 and biochemical analysis to assess cellularity. The permeability of these compounds was evaluated in the presence or absence of fibrin glue. Opocrin 2% was the best choice for cellular distribution within the scaffolds, which were then cultured for T0, T4, T7 and T10 days. Fibrin glue has been strongly supportive for the survival of cells with a significant increase in DNA content at T10 (P<0.05). Moreover, the synthetic activity of fibrin-free scaffolds was always negative. Lastly, a progressive increase in collagen 1 and 3 with fibrin-glue was observed. However, static culture is not sufficient to support long-term cellular activities and at T10 there is still a lack of organized matrix similar to the native tissue.
