Bone tissue engineering aims to restore and maintain the function of bone by means of biomaterial-based scaffolds. This review specifically focuses on the use of fibers in biomaterials used for bone tissue engineering as suitable environment for bone tissue repair and regeneration. We present a bioinspired rationale behind the use of fibers in bone tissue engineering and provide an overview of the types of fibers as well as their most common fabrication methods, including solution, melt and… 

Toughening of Bioceramic Composites for Bone Regeneration

Bioceramics are widely considered as elective materials for the regeneration of bone tissue, due to their compositional mimicry with bone inorganic components. However, they are intrinsically

Mn-Doped Glass–Ceramic Bioactive (Mn-BG) Thin Film to Selectively Enhance the Bioactivity of Electrospun Fibrous Polymeric Scaffolds

Electrospinning to fabricate a nanofibrous polymeric scaffold and pulsed laser deposition to tune and control the composition and morphology of the scaffold surface have promising potential in the regeneration of osteochondral tissue due to its ability to induce mineralization in connective tissues.

Polymer-Based Nanofiber–Nanoparticle Hybrids and Their Medical Applications

This paper describes the creation of NNHs from routinely used biocompatible polymer composites and combines recent research discoveries to focus on the application of N NHs in drug release, antibacterial, and tissue engineering in the last two years.

Distinct Morphologies of Bone Apatite Clusters in Endochondral and Intramembranous Ossification

Bone apatite crystals grow in clusters, but the microstructure of these clusters is unknown. This study compares the structural and compositional differences between bone apatite clusters formed in

Evaluation of the Optimal Uses of Five Genotypes of Musa textilis Fiber Grown in the Tropical Region

Knowing the genotypes of Musa textilis and its fiber production properties is key for developing cultivars with homogeneous properties and focusing on specific products or market segments that
