Abstract: Tissue engineering represents an alternative approach to the current invasive surgical procedures for the intervertebral disc (IVD) repair. The combination of injectable hydrogels and elastic biomaterials allow three-dimensional cell cultures and provide mechanical stability. In the present study a thermoreversible hyaluronan (HA) hydrogel as well as fibrin glue were mixed with polyurethane (PU) and their effect was investigated on the proliferation and differentiation of human IVD (hIVD cells) and mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) by in vitro and ex-vivo experiments.
