Bioactive ceramic foams – processing, properties testing and applications

By Jan Motyka


Porous materials for tissue engineering are novel group of materials. They provide some unique properties, namely bioactivity, biodegradability and osteoconductivity. Ceramics porous structure for bone substitutes have considerable potential for applications in medical surgery. But they have poor mechanical properties. Hence they are used for low bearing applications. Those are the reasons for extensive investigation of these materials, mainly in the last few years. Lots of production procedures exist, which leads to production of foams with various shapes and properties
