Abstract

Tissue engineering was once considered as a branch of biomaterials science. Nowadays it is an interdisciplinary field that allows reconstruction of damaged tissue by seeding multiplied host’s cells onto the scaffold and implanting them into places of inju ry. Scaffolds are 3 - dimentional porous constructions, made of polymeric or ceramic material. One of the most common scaffold materials is polylactide, a biodegradable and biocompatible polyester, easily obtained from natural, renewable sources. The aim of this paper is to highlight polylactide biomedical properties and summarize the state of art. It presents polylactide - based scaffolds used in cartilage, bone, nervous and vascular tissue regeneration.
