Tendons (rotator cuff, Achilles and patellar tendons) are among the most commonly injured soft tissues [1]. Many repairs/reconstructions have been attempted using sutures, resorbable biomaterials, autografts, and allografts, but with varying success. A tissue engineered repair using mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) is attractive [2–4] but often lacks initial stiffness and strength [5].
