Introduction: The repair of large bone defects following trauma, infection and tumor resection remains a major clinical challenge. Theoretically, bone tissue engineering could solve the problem of limited donor tissue availability without donor site morbidity. Prefabrication approaches developed in [for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
