Every year, approximately 200,000 anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries occur in the United States; of these cases, 60,000–75,000 patients undergo ACL reconstruction [1]. The ACL plays a critical role in knee stability; however, it possesses little inherent capacity for healing. Although reconstruction is often used in active patients, issues such as donor site morbidity and long term joint stability have motivated interest in tissue-engineered ligament analogues.
