The New Art of Bone Graft Substitute Design
A new method of design and manufacturing of bone graft substitutes is introduced. For the first time it is possible to prepare bone graft substitutes with a directed and controlled pore structure. Furthermore, the formation of sophisticated geometries is feasible. First in vitro investigations with cell cultures show a vital cell growing on the synthetic bone graft material. Numerous applications are possible.
