          Abstract

          Our group has recently fabricated 3-dimensional scaffolds of unique architecture to mediate favorable cell binding, proliferation, and differentiation. In this study, the osteoconductive and bioactive polycaprolactone-20% tricalcium phosphate (PCL-TCP) scaffolds were assessed for the treatment of critical-sized defects of the mandible, with respect to new bone formation. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) was combined with some scaffolds to test if bone regeneration could be enhanced.
