Abstract In this paper, we report a physics based mathematical model to describe the mechanotransduction at the luminal surface of the brachial artery during a flow-mediated dilation (FMD) process. To account for the effect of the released vasodilators in response to the sudden blood flow resurgence, a scalar property is introduced as a signal radially diffusing through the arterial wall, locally affecting its compliance. The model was evaluated on 19 in vivo responses of brachial artery FMD (BA...

Abstract Recent advances in the processing of wear-resistant calcium-phosphate reinforced CoCrMo composites for articulating surface applications has necessitated further investigation of performance in biological conditions relevant to patient applications. To this end, CoCrMo composites containing calcium phosphate in the form of hydroxyapatite (HA) were manufactured to study the influence of the reinforcing phase on the tribofilm formation in biologically-relevant conditions. The CoCrMo-HA co...

Abstract Ceramic implants have superior performance due to the excellent wear resistance and biocompatibility. However, the poor machinability limits their applications. Plasma sprayed ceramic coating on the additively manufactured metal substrate not only provides a 3-dimensional conformal implant coating and but also forms a highly wear-resistant surface layer. In this paper, three types of ceramic coatings of Al2O3, ZrO2, and Al2O3–ZrO2 composite have been fabricated by atmosphere plasma spra...

Abstract Brain tissue is a heterogeneous material, constituted by a soft matrix filled with cerebrospinal fluid. The interactions between, and the complexity of each of these components are responsible for the non-linear rate-dependent behaviour that characterizes what is one of the most complex tissue in nature. Here, we investigate the influence of the cutting rate on the fracture properties of brain, through wire cutting experiments. We also present a computational model for the rate-dependen...
Abstract The present study elucidates the impact of detergent-based chemical decellularization on the micro-mechanical properties of porcine and rabbit corneas for the purpose of extracellular matrix (ECM) derived scaffolds. Aiming to optimize the decellularization process, different concentrations of Sodium Dodecyl Sulfate (SDS), Triton X-100 and CHAPS detergents were assessed on their ability to decellularize corneas from both bio-models at incubation periods of 12 and 24h. We evaluated the ef...

Abstract Organic debris in the form of fish bone wastes account to several thousand tons annually. In recent years, researchers have turned attention towards the bioconversion of organic debris into materials with biomedical applications. Accordingly, the present study synthesized nano-Hydroxyapatite (n-HAP) from bones of discarded Sardinella longiceps by the alkaline hydrolysis method. The synthesized n-HAP was characterized by using the scanning electron microscope (SEM), X-ray diffraction (XR...

Elastomers have been used in a variety of biomedical fields, including tissue engineering, soft robotics, prostheses, and cosmetics. Elastomers used for skin grafting scaffolds tend to be biodegradable, but other applications require perdurable elastomers. Advances in perdurable elastomers would allow for the development of a range of substrates useful in the creation of joint prostheses, chronic neural electrodes, implantables, and wearables. Still, for these, tailored mechanical properties and...

Abstract Mechanical characterization of abdominal aortic aneurysms using personalized biomechanical models is being widely investigated as an alternative criterion to assess risk of rupture. These methods rely on accurate wall motion detection and appropriate model boundary conditions. In this study, multi-perspective ultrasound is combined with finite element models to perform mechanical characterization of abdominal aortas in volunteers. Multi-perspective biplane radio frequency ultrasound rec...

Abstract It is well known that cells can generate endogenous forces onto the extracellular matrix, but to what extent the mechanical properties of the matrix influences these endogenous cellular forces remains unclear. We therefore sought to quantify the influence of matrix rigidity on cell-matrix interactions by inducing cross-links using increasing concentrations of genipin (0.01–1 mM) or by blocking cross-link formation using beta-aminopropionitrile (BAPN) in engineered human tendon tissue co...

Abstract Surface texturing is an effective approach to improve the tribological performance of artificial joints. In this paper, the frictional performance of Ultra-High-Molecular-Weight-Polyethylene and Cobalt–Chromium–Molybdenum material combination with micro grooves fabricated on the metal bearings is studied. The results show that grooves with width of 500 μm, depth of 4.5 μm and pitch distance of 3 mm could provide the optimized tribological performance, the coefficient of friction of whic...
