Joints and cartilage
Ceramic are widespread in Joint cartilage repair. Hip implants use more and more zirconia material for its very good properties of low abrasion compared to metal, and its biocompatibility . Bioresorbable ceramic are also used for regenerating cartilage. These grafts substitutes promote cells to integrate the graft and transform it into cartilage tissue. Using 3D printing opens new ways of designing joint implants, and improving cartilage regeneration.
