Article Preview

In this work, we focused on the manufacture of artificial bone for medical replacement based on the combination of individual properties of ceramic and polymer. Here, periosteum was fabricated with a HAp (Hydroxylapatite) frame, while compact bone was fabricated from multi-layer electro-spun PS (polystyrene)/PCL (polycaprolactone) using biocompatible collagen glue. Spongy bone is formed from PCL/PLGA spongy loading BCP (Biphasic Calcium Phosphate) powder coated collagen. SEM images showed successful fabrication of the artificial bone scaffold through a combination of electro-spinning, extrusion, and use of the slurry method.
