To mimic the nano-fibrous structure of the natural extracellular matrix, a nano composite scaffold of poly(L-lactic acid)/hydroxyapatite(PLLA/HAP) was fabricated by a thermally induced phase separation method. The characterization of the composite scaffold showed that the scaffold had a nano-fibrous PLLA network (fiber size 100-750 nm), an interconnective… CONTINUE READING
