The idea of scaffolds for bone regeneration is to facilitate bone regrowth when the gap in it is too large for its natural healing. This can frequently happen after severe bone fractures, removal of bone tumours, craniomaxillofacial surgery, etc. Currently used bone implants are not fulfilling clinician’s criteria. The bone regrowth process is too slo w, the voids filling is incomplete, inflammatory processes may take place, and mechanical strength of the scaffold is low. In present work the ultrasonic technique was applied to produce a nanohydroxyaptite layer on the polymeric scaffolds surface. It is expected that the formed layer will significantly improve the cell attachment by changing the polymer surface properties, e.g. topography.
