Efficacy of treating segmental bone defects through endochondral ossification: 3D printed designs and bone metabolic activities

Materials Today Bio 2022 Volume 14, Article 100237

Three-dimensional printing (3D printing) is a promising technique for producing scaffolds for bone tissue engineering applications. Porous scaffolds can be printed directly, and the design, shape and porosity can be controlled. 3D synthetic biodegradable polymeric scaffolds intended for in situ bone regeneration must meet stringent criteria, primarily appropriate mechanical properties, good 3D design, adequate biocompatibility and the ability to enhance bone formation. In this study, healing of critical-sized (5 ​mm) femur defects of rats was enhanced by implanting two different designs of 3D printed poly(l-lactide-co-ε-caprolactone) (poly(LA-co-CL)) scaffolds seeded with rat bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (rBMSC), which had been pre-differentiated…
