Commented on Three-Dimensional Scaffolds for Tissue Engineering Applications: Role of Porosity and Pore Size
Microsphere-based scaffolds have been utilized for tissue engineering, these microsphere-based scaffolds are limited in their stiffness for applications such as bone regeneration for long bone defects. In fact, the design and fabrication of scaffolds with a porous structure and sufficient mechanical properties is one of the most important issues in bone tissue engineering.
