Hydroxyapatite structures created by additive manufacturing with extruded photopolymer
Bone tissue has the ability to regenerate and heal itself after fracture trauma. However, this ability can be affected by different risk factors that are related to the patient and the nature of the fracture. Some of the factors are age, gender, diet, health, and habits. Critical-sized defects are particularly difficult, if not impossible, to heal correctly. Particularly in large defects, bone regeneration ability is impeded, disrupting normal healing processes, resulting in defective healing, integration, and non-union. To prevent and treat defective healing or non-union, surgical intervention ...
