Abstract

Porous scaffolds fabricated from biodegradable polymers have been widely used and play a vital role in tissue engineering and in situ tissue reconstruction. This study presents a novel fabrication technique involving injection molding and conventional particulate leaching (IM/PL) to obtain the L-shaped nasal scaffold for rhinoplasty. The results indicate that the porous nasal scaffold made by the IM/PL method shows the acceptable biocompatibility and degradation. The nasal scaffold may degrade well after surgery and the cartilage tissue may grow well in it. This IM/PL technique may replace the traditional artificial silicone filler and reduce the surgery cost.
