Hannover Medical School

The aim of the research group 2180 is to demonstrate the basic feasibility and exemplary production of a graded implant for future use at the tendon-bone transition of the rotator cuff. Electrospun fibre mats made of biodegradable polymers (in particular on the basis of polycaprolactone) with a directional ("tendon-side") or non-directional ("bone-side") fibre orientation serve as the basic material.
