Polymer porous scaffolds and hydrogels have been separately employed as analogues of the native extra-cellular matrix (ECM). However, both of these two kinds of materials have their own advantages and shortcomings. In this work, an attempt to combine the advantages of these two kinds of materials is carried out. Poly-L-lactide (PLLA) scaffolds with good mechanical properties were prepared by thermally induced phase separation, which were then filled with hydrogel aiming at entrapment of cells… CONTINUE READING
