Melt electrospinning writing: polymer fibers for tissue engineering

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[01/02/2016] Sometimes, soft tissue in our body needs to be replaced after surgery or an injury. But surgeons are not always able to take tissue from other body parts as a replacement. Then, they need to use implants. The production of soft implants that can constantly endure load and stress like our own tissue is a big challenge for research. Melt electrospinning writing can be a solution.Melt electrospinning writing: polymer fibers for tissue engineering - Read more
