Abstract

Current practice of facial reconstruction is often below patients’ expectations. This could be improved by the use of 3D printed personalised bone scaffolds. In this study the biocompatibility of 5 potential binders for this process was investigated in vitro. None of the binders showed an overt toxic effect. However, all potential binders except for sodium trisilicate solution showed a cytostatic effect at concentrations of 100µM suggesting their use could result in an inhibitory affect on wound healing in vivo.
