- 24 - RESORBABLE SCAFFOLDS FOR BONE REPAIR AND LONG BONE TISSUE ENGINEERING ABSTRACT OF THE DISCLOSURE Bioresorbable scaffolds for bone engineering, such as repair of bone defects, 5 particularly long bone defects, or augmentation of bone length are described. Scaffolds are porous and comprise multiple side channels. Furthermore, the scaffolds are stiff but yet fracture resistant and with sufficient bending, compressive and torsional strength suitable for bone engineering. The slow degradation of the scaffold is sufficient for the 3D matrix to maintain structural integrity and mechanical properties during the 10 remodeling process. Figure 1B
