Bone tissue engineering : from bench to bedside - Review article

Woodruff, Maria A., Hutmacher, Dietmar W., Berner, Arne, Lange, Claudia, Reichert, Johannes C., Fratzl, Peter, & Chen, F. (2012) Bone tissue engineering : from bench to bedside - Review article. Materials Today, 15(10), pp. 430-435.


The drive to develop bone grafts for the filling of major gaps in the skeletal structure has led to a major research thrust towards developing biomaterials for bone engineering. Unfortunately, from a clinical perspective, the promise of bone tissue engineering which was so vibrant a decade ago has so far failed to deliver the anticipated results of becoming a routine therapeutic application in reconstructive surgery. Here we describe the analysis of long-term bone regeneration studies in preclinical animal models, exploiting methods of micro- and nano analysis of biodegradable composite scaffolds.

40 citations in Scopus
Search Google Scholar™
31 citations in Web of Science®

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.
