Abstract

In vitro behavior of the bioactive glass and feasibility of using the fabrication technique developed in the laboratory to manufacture three-dimensional bioactive glass scaffolds for orthopedic applications were evaluated. Scaffolds containing three-dimensional internal architecture of 500 μm channels intersecting in all the directions at three porosity levels of 50% was designed and the molds were made on a 3-D Inkjet Printing Machine. A scaffold structure reproducing the design was found in the final 3D BG scaffolds. The results indicated that the bioactive glass to be a potential material for bone tissue engineering scaffold.
