Abstract

The effectiveness of hydroxyapatite fibers (HAF) as a scaffold of osteoblastic cells for bone generation was investigated. Three types of HAF with different diameters of pores and porosity were used in the study. The results showed that HAF is degradable and can be eventually replaced by bone tissue in vivo. The results suggested that HAF can be used as an effective scaffold for osteoblast-like cells having capability for bone conduction and that HAF with larger pore sizes can be replaced by newly formed bone tissue in vivo.
