Tissue engineering has emerged as an interesting alternative in regenerative medicine thanks to its development in recent years. Researchers have produced bioartificial substitutes that, by combining cells, biomaterials, and growth factors, restore the function of damaged organs. The objective of this study was to assess the efficacy of tissue engineering in the treatment of tendon injuries in animal models by systematically reviewing the scientific literature.
