Fiberbone - Development of a novel fiber- and composite-strengthened bone replacement material
The so-called direct freeze foaming allows the development of porous ceramic structures to novel bone replacement materials. Typical freeze-foamed biomaterial structures exhibit open porosity, macro and micro porosity as well as interconnected pores. These special features provably enable the ingrowth of tissue material. The future aim is to further increase the biodegradation as well as the compressive strength of said foams by adding inorganic, structure-stabilizing calcium phosphate fibers. Furthermore, with the addition of strength-enhancing ceramic material, a use as stable and biodegradation supporting implant might be possible.
