Abstract

Human osteoblast interaction with porous polyurethane/Ca P composite scaffolds was investigated for bone engineering. Crosslinked polyurethane foams (PUF) were proposed as matrices of biointegrable composite scaffolds for bone regeneration. PU foams and composites were synthesized by bulk polymerization of polymeric MDI with two polyol mixtures. The results suggests that the presence of the inorganic phase may improve the 'biomimetic activity' of the composite scaffolds.
