Minimal surface scaffold designs for tissue engineering

Kapfer, Sebastian C; Hyde, Stephen; Mecke, Klaus; Arns, Christoph; Schroder-Turk, Gerd

Description

Triply-periodic minimal surfaces are shown to be a more versatile source of biomorphic scaffold designs than currently reported in the tissue engineering literature. A scaffold architecture with sheetlike morphology based on minimal surfaces is discussed, with significant structural and mechanical advantages over conventional designs. These sheet solids are porous solids obtained by inflation of cubic minimal surfaces to sheets of finite thickness, as opposed to the conventional network solids...[Show more]
