Abstract: In this chapter, we will focus on the application of silk fibroin (SF) as material for tendon/ligament tissue engineering scaffolds and contrast this treatment method with other existing modalities for ruptured tendon/ligament. Upon demonstrating the benefits of using SF as material for tendon/ligament tissue engineering scaffold, the various scaffold architectures will also be compared, with detailed works on the knitted structure being presented, highlighting the state of the art in tendon/ligament tissue engineering research and its future trends. Prior to this, however, it is necessary to gain an understanding of the function and microstructure of the tissue of interest, and the prevalence of its injury in order to appreciate the significance of the matter. © 2012 by Nova Science Publishers, Inc.
