Bone tissue engineering requires a biocompatible scaffold that supports cell growth and enhances the native repair process. Poly(3-hydroxybutyrate-co-3-hydroxyvalerate) (PHB-HV) is a biodegradable 3D scaffold with 88.1 – 0.3% porosity and pore size of 163.5 – 0.1 mm. Previous studies demonstrated the potential of PHB-HV as a scaffold in spinal cord repair. The aim of this study was to evaluate PHB-HV as a scaffold for bone regeneration by assessing the cytocompatability of this scaffold.
