Comparing different direct metal printed resorbable medical implants – Presented by Holger Jahr, Univ. Hospital RWTH Aachen, at the 3D Medical Conference, which takes place on January 30-31, 2019, at MECC Maastricht, The Netherlands.

Bone repair biomaterials should possess bone-mimicking fully interconnected porous structures of relevant mechanical properties. Ideally, this is combined with an appropriate biodegradation behavior to enable full regeneration and subsequent biological remodeling. Recent advances in additive manufacturing resulted in biomaterials satisfying the former two requirements, while simultaneously satisfying the latter requirement remains challenging.
