Summary The repair of musculoskeletal tissue is a vital concern of all surgical specialties, orthopedics and related disciplines. Written by recognized experts in their field, Musculoskeletal Tissue Regeneration: Biological Materials and Methods aims to provide both basic and advanced knowledge of the newer methodologies being developed and introduced to the clinical arena. On the cusp of a revolution, musculoskeletal repair is based on new tools that have recently become available or are about to emerge into clinical practice. By their very nature, these tools require an interdisciplinary approach, u
