Abstract: Background and purpose: Rotator cuff tendon (RCT) injuries are difficult to manage as current strategies do not restore tissue functionality. Driven by this market demand, several devices have been developed during the last years, however, to develop a structure that properly mimics the mechanical performance of the native tissue remains a challenge. This way, in this work we study a set of design criteria for a synthetic graft development for RCT repair and reconstruction, in order to achieve a structure with an adequate mechanical performance to substitute the damaged tissue, and that can also act as a scaffold, allowing and guiding tissue ingrowth.
