Porous titanium scaffolds are a promising class of biomaterials for grafting large bone defects, because titanium provides sufficient mechanical support, whereas its porous structure allows bone ingrowth resulting in good osseointegration. To reinforce porous titanium scaffolds with biological cues that enhance and continue bone regeneration, scaffolds can… CONTINUE READING
