Copper ions released from silicate bioceramic foams can stimulate angiogenesis and elicit a local antibacterial effect without the need for antibiotics. Potential applications range from porous orbital implants, in which implant vascularization is the key for the clinical success, to multifunctional, hard-tissue engineering scaffolds that combine pro-angiogenic, antiseptic, and bone regenerative properties.
