Description : This book aims to facilitate the advancement of tissue engineering. Bone is a specific connective tissue, characterized by its mineralized natural matrix that gives bone the physical properties that lets it take on load, support useful organs and defend sensitive body parts. Bone loss or damage may happen as a consequence of hereditary conditions, communicable diseases, tumors and trauma. Bone restoration includes an integrative procedure of natural tissue and living cells, and provides itself to the integration of naturally derived or biocompatible synthetic scaffolds intended at replacing absent or injured osseous tissues. The book discusses numerous procedures of bone renewal inclusive of tissue regeneration, bone grafting, etc. This book compiles various well conducted researches related to bone regeneration and will be beneficial for readers interested in this field.
