3D weave Mg scaffold

In this study, Mg scaffolds were first fabricated using a 3D weaving technique. The weaving architectures were altered to change the internal porosity. The as-woven scaffolds are then processed with dip coating or injection molding with polylactic acid (PLA) for enhanced mechanical strength and corrosion resistance.
