TERMIS 2021 | Applications of collagen-based therapies in ruptured eardrums

Juan Pablo Aguilar Alemán, PhD, Tecnológico de Monterrey, Monterrey, Mexico, discusses the therapeutic potential of tissue engineered collagen grafts. In patients who have been infected with the flu, the eardrum can rupture and whilst the tympanic membrane heals itself in most cases, hearing loss can occur in a small proportion of patients. Collagen grafts derived from tendons can offer a convenient and affordable solution for patients who have ruptured eardrums. This interview took place at the 6th World Congress of the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society (TERMIS 2021).
