Photopolymerization for filling porous ceramic matrix: improvement of mechanical properties and drug delivering behaviour.
This work presents the photopolymerisation of composite scaffolds where a prefabricated ceramic scaffold was impregnated with poly(ethylene) glycol dimethacrylate (PEGDMA) macromonomer solution. The PEGDMA solution penetrates ...
The preparation of nanocomposite scaffolds for use in bone tissue engineering.
Bone is the second most frequently transplanted tissue in humans. There are 2.2 million bone graft procedures annually, which have several disadvantages such as: donor site morbidity, risk of disease transmission and a ...
Extended release of proteins following encapsulation in hydroxyapatite/chitosan composite scaffolds for bone tissue engineering applications.
Highlights: Biocompatible, mechanically robust scaffold with an appropriate stability for bone healing when used with fixation device. Proteins can be covalently attached to the scaffold. Proteins are released for an ...
Platelet-rich plasma, Hydroxyapatite, and Chitosan in the bone and cartilaginous regeneration of femoral trochlea in rabbits: clinical, radiographic, and histomorphometric evaluations.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the trochlear bone and cartilaginous regeneration of rabbits using the association of PRP, chitosan, and hydroxyapatite. Hole was made in rabbit troches, one hole in each animal ...
