Cotton wool-like poly(L-lactic acid) and siloxane-doped vaterite (SiV) composite scaffolds were prepared with a modified electrospinning system for bone tissue engineering applications. The effects of changing the SiV content in the materials from 10 to 30 wt% on elasticity and the ability to release calcium ions and soluble silica were evaluated. The… CONTINUE READING
