1 Citation (Scopus)


The chapter outlines recent studies in layer-by-layer synthesis of 3-D porous scaffolds, including the biocompatibility of the 3-D-matrix from nitinol (NiTi intermetallic phase) and nitinol with hydroxyapatite in comparison with titanium. The correlation between computer-aided modelling of 3-D scaffolds, optimal laser fabrication regimes, microstructure, and chemical and biological properties is discussed. Research has been carried out both for the forward and inverse directions during synthesis, that is, on the basis of dynamic proliferation and osteointegration results in 3-D scaffolds, in order to improve the design, microstructure, and material choice. Original ideas are proposed for the porous drug delivery system fabrication from shape memory nitinol.
