Multi-step fabricating tissue engineering bone


A multi-step method for fabricating a tissue engineering bone comprises the following steps: (1) scaffold repair and pre-vascularization: fabricating a tissue engineering bone scaffold at a bone defect site, and conducting pre-vascularization; and (2) post-implantation of a seed cell for bone tissue engineering: after an inflammatory reaction period, combined with time for micro-vessel in-growth, implanting an osteogenic-induced seed cell into a tissue engineering bone scaffold at the bone defect site. In certain embodiments, the step (2) of post-implantation of a seed cell for bone tissue engineering is performed 7 to 14 days after the step (1) of scaffold repair and pre-vascularization.
