Abstract
Scaffolding structures are used in manifold medical applications. The spectrum of the materials varies from organic to inorganic up to composite materials. Depending on the application the implant structures can replace the defect or support the regeneration of the injured tissue. By using different manufacturing technologies and materials the scaffolding structures can be adapted to individual applications or specific defects. The article gives an overview about manufacturing technologies and materials based on selected application examples.
