Induction and quantification of collagen fiber alignment in a three-dimensional hydroxyapatite-collagen composite scaffold.

Abstract

Hydroxyapatite-collagen composite scaffolds are designed to serve as a regenerative load bearing replacement that mimics bone. However, the material properties of these scaffolds are at least an order of magnitude less than that of bone and subject to fail under physiological loading conditions. These scaffolds compositionally resemble bone but they do not… (More)
