Abstract

Biodegradable polymer scaffolds have played a significant role in wide range of tissue engineering application such as bone scaffolds since the last decade. The aim of this article is to provide the comprehensive overview of biocompatible and biodegradable polymer materials and composite materials with their advantages and drawbacks in the application of biomaterial scaffolds, furthermore the properties and degradation criteria of the biomaterials are discussed in this review.
