Abstract

Polysaccharides (PS) and their derivatives are highly attractive as biomaterials in the field of regenerative medicine (RM), owing to their low cytotoxicity, hydrophilicity, and mechanical strength. In this chapter, a short overview of 3D bioprinting, an emerging technology in RM, will be given. In addition following the general introduction on PS and their derivatives the use of bioinks for printing of various types of structures/scaffolds and their characterization will be covered. Also, the application of bioprinted scaffolds in tissue engineering (cartilage, bone, and skin) will be discussed in detail.
