Bone tissue engineering in fractures and bone defects: Potential applications
Author(s): Dr. Kavyansh Bhan
Abstract: Exploring new Bone Tissue Engineering approaches to generate new bone for repair or Replacement of bone defects in the clinical setting relies on the combination of scaffolds, cells and growth factors. Understanding whether such approaches are suitable and optimised for the translation from bench to bedside requires preclinical testing in animal models. Through this review article, efforts have been made to enumerate different bone tissue engineering approaches, draw comparisons where relevant, and discuss advantages and disadvantages of each.
