One of the aims of tissue engineering is to provide means for self-regeneration of tissues which requires reconstruction due to pathology, trauma or surgery (eg.: tumor resection). Important examples of this approach are devices intended to support regeneration of bones. The design investigated in our project is based on the idea of porous biomaterials - scaffolds - that are strong enough to maintain the mechanical function of the bone segment and in parallel can act as a support for osteoblast proliferation. Depending on the application, degradable or non-degradable materials are desired.
