Concerning the broad topic of neural tissue engineering, we present a review relating to the state of the art in spinal cord injury repair strategies. Particular attention is given to spinal cord damage causes and effects, in neural and mesenchymal stem cell therapeutic approaches, in the use of hydrogels as cell carriers and in the mathematical modeling of involved phenomena. High importance is given to multidisciplinary strategies applied to spinal cord repair, since new research frontiers are believed to be now on 3D gel/cells and neuroprotective agent constructs for neural reconstruction purposes.
