Damage to avascular tissue often requires medical attention due to its inability to regenerate healthy tissue. Tissue engineering has the potential to repair this damage by growing thick tissue in vitro with properties and geometry similar to the innate tissue by seeding three dimensional (3D) scaffolds in hydrogels. Scaffold designs must increase internal surface area and void fraction to provide nutrients to the center of the scaffold to ensure viability and sustainable growth.
