In tissue engineering, porous scaffolds are used as a temporal support for tissue regeneration through cell adhesion, proliferation and differentiation. Besides applying a suitable material that is both biocompatible and biodegradable, the architectural design of the porous scaffold can be of essential for successful tissue regeneration. The architecture is of great influence on mechanical properties and transport properties of nutrients and metabolites1.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
