Scaffolds for tissue engineering

Klaudia Pluta

Abstrakt

The paper presents the current trends in medicine of regenerative tissue defect caused by resection of tumors or fractures. Although it is a relatively young field of science, it creates new possibilities for the reconstruction of pathologically altered tissue with the use of three-dimensional scaffolds. Tissue engineering places particular emphasis on the type of scaffold from which they are made because of a number of requirements of medical materials including biocompatibility, mechanical strength and porosity.
