G. Wei,    Medtronic, Inc./Osteotech, USA

P.X. Ma,    University of Michigan, USA

Abstract:

Polymeric scaffolds play a pivotal role in tissue engineering. This chapter will focus on the state-of-the-art polymeric scaffolds and exciting recent advancements. First, the general concepts and requirements of tissue engineering biomaterials are introduced. Second, various types of polymeric biomaterials used in tissue engineering are reviewed. Third, important fabrication technologies of 3D scaffolds and their structural characteristics are discussed. Fourth, surface modification and composite scaffold fabrication techniques are presented as ways to improve scaffold properties. Then advanced nanostructured ...
