Following accidents or cancer surgery surgeons often have to transplant healthy bone tissue or synthetic material to repair the resulting bone defects. Unfortunately, these procedures do not always have the desired effect.

Better survival of implanted cells improves healing of bone fractures

Academics / General Science : Science Codex

To treat a complicated, non-healing bone defect, surgeons often use an implant with living cells to promote bone repair, but the implanted cells have a small chance of surviving because they are not prepared for a lack of oxygen and...

Engineering bone growth: Coated tissue scaffolds help body grow new bone to repair injuries or congenital defects

Academics / General Science : ScienceDaily: Science Society

Chemical engineers have devised a new implantable tissue scaffold coated with bone growth factors that are released slowly over a few weeks. When applied to bone injuries or defects, this coated scaffold induces the body to rapidly ...
