Table 1 Advantages and disadvantages of three bioceramic scaffolds

From: Effect of strontium-containing on the properties of Mg-doped wollastonite bioceramic scaffolds

ScaffoldAdvantagesDisadvantages
β-TCPExcellent biocompatibility and bone conductivityLow mechanical strength and cell differentiation ability; poor induction of apatite formation and degradation ability
CSMUltrahigh strength; excellent osteogenic propertiesPoor induction of apatite formation ability; low capability of cell differentiation
Sr-CSMSuperior ability to induce apatite formation, cell proliferation and differentiation; acceptable mechanical strengthMechanical strength needs to be improved
