Abstract

Bone is the second most common transplantation tissue after blood. While the use of bone grafts remains the optimum choice, the problems associated with them has made the use of synthetic implants ever more popular. Over the last decade, there has been a lot research into the development of engineered new bone, to replace damaged tissue. An important part of this research effort has gone into the development of three-dimensional porous scaffolds, to support and guide the new cells.
