Beta-tricalcium phosphate (β-TCP) has been widely used for bone regeneration for many years. However, there are few studies on the osteoconduction ability of different shaped β-TCP scaffolds. In this study, we compared the osteoconductive potential between the tubular and cylindrical β-TCP scaffolds in long bone defect animal model. The results showed that more regenerated bone and a better healing property were observed in tubular group than that in cylindrical group. By hematoxylin-eosin… CONTINUE READING
