The concept of 'biostructural units' for application in tissue engineering was presented. The process of interfacial polyelectrolyte complexation (IPC) was employed. By means of processes like hydroentanglement and needle-punching, scaffolds were created from both wet and dry fibers for tissue engineering. It was found that the formation of scaffolds and constructs via the assembly of biostructural units can provide for better spatial definition.
