Abstract

The process for the fabrication of porous biodegradable and shape-specific polymeric scaffolds for a variety of tissue engineering applications was described. Computer aided design (CAD) using the Solidworks modeling software was implemented to create several different models of the cubic orthogonal geometry. A Monte Carlo simulation method was used to vary the degree of interconnectivity between the pores. It was shown that the process could be used to fabricate biodegradable polymeric scaffolds with well defined microarchitecture from CT scans to a variety of tissue engineering applications.
