Abstract
The healing of bone defects due to trauma, infection, congenital abnormalities or surgical interventions is a challenge for reconstructive surgery. Considering the restrictions and failure of body transplants, a lot of research is done to develop synthetic materials with bone properties. Our current research, in which several departments are involved, uses synthetic polymers, that already proved their biocompatibility and resorbability in vitro and in vivo. The possibility to stimulate or direct the bone healing in an in vivo goat model is tested by mixing those polymers with osteoconductive, osteoinductive materials as alpha-TriCalciumPhosphate, and osteogenetic stem cells.
