TERMIS 2021 | Collagen grafts for tympanic membrane regeneration

Juan Pablo Aguilar Alemán, PhD, Tecnológico de Monterrey, Monterrey, Mexico, provides an overview of repairing damaged eardrums with allogeneic collagen grafts. Type I collagen derived from various sources including tendons can provide a tissue-engineered solution for patients with holes in their eardrums, as tendons have properties suited to the environment around the inner ear. Dr Aguilar Alemán additionally highlights the non-invasive nature of the procedure, as well as other advantages. This interview took place at the 6th World Congress of the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society (TERMIS 2021).
