: Porous hydroxyapatite (HAP) foam permits three-dimensional (3D) structure with fully interconnecting pores as well as excellent tissue response and good osteoconductivity. It is therefore thought to be a good candidate as scaffold material for bone regeneration and as a synthetic bone substitute material. To fabricate better porous HAP foam, improved physical and structural properties as well as higher osteoconductivity are desired. In the present study, the effects of sintering temperature on the physical and compositional properties of porous HAP foam were evaluated by employing high sintering temperature starting at 1,300 degrees C up to 1,550 degrees C. The mechanical strength of porous HAP foam increased with sintering temperature to reach the maximum value at 1,525 degrees C, then decreased slightly when sintering temperature was further increased to 1,550 degrees C. Alpha tricalcium phosphate (alpha-TCP) was formed, and thus the porous HAP foam became biphasic calcium phosphate. Biphasic calcium phosphate consisting of both alpha-TCP and HAP had been reported to show higher osteoconductivity than HAP alone. We therefore recommend 1,500-1,550 degrees C as the sintering temperature for porous HAP foam since this condition provided the most desirable physical properties with biphasic calcium phosphate composition.

Porosity andpore size of biomaterial scaffolds play a critical role in bone formation in vitro andin vivo. This review explores the state of knowledge regarding the relationship between porosity and pore size of biomaterials used for bone regeneration. The effect of these morphological features on osteogenesis in vitro andin vivo, as well as relationships to mechanical properties of the scaffolds, are addressed. In vitro, lower porosity stimulates osteogenesis by suppressing cell proliferation a...

In the present study, two biphasic calcium phosphate biomaterials (BCP) with HA/TCP ratios of 50/50 and 30/70 were obtained from a pure HA biomaterial. The bioma- terials which showed the same three-dimensional geometry were implanted into corticocan- cellous costal defects of sheep. In the specimens of all three biomaterials, abundant bone formation, mineral dissolution from the biomaterial scaffolds, and active cellular resorption of the scaffolds was present after 6 and 12 months. Backscatter...

: Effects of functionally gradient calcium phosphate consisting of hydroxyapatite (HAP) and alpha-tricalcium phosphate (alpha-TCP) on proliferation and differentiation of osteoblasts were evaluated using MC3T3-E1 cells. There were no significant differences in the proliferation of MC3T3-E1 cells among HAP-alpha-TCP functionally gradient calcium phosphate, pure HAP, and cell culture plastic wells. mRNA expressions of type I collagen, alkaline phosphate, and osteocalcine were evaluated as indexes ...

Abstract Cylindrical hydroxyapatitic grafts at two different degree of porosity (60% and 40%) were tested as controlled drug delivery devices in order to evaluate the fundamental parameters which control release kinetics. The effect of device porosity, drug steric hindrance and drug loading on kinetics release has been appreciated using Ibuprofen-lysine and Hydrocortisone Na-succinate as non-steroidal and steroidal anti-inflammatory drug-models, respectively. The data put in evidence the difficu...

The first generation of clinically applied tissue engineering concepts in the area of skin, cartilage and bone marrow regeneration was based on the isolation, expansion and implantation of cells from the patient's own tissue. Although successful in selective treatments, tissue engineering needs to overcome major challenges to allow widespread clinical application with predictable outcomes. One challenge is to present the cells in a matrix to the implantation site to allow the cells to survive th...

Bone loss due to trauma or disease is an increasingly serious health problem. Current clinical treatments for critical-sized defects are problematic and often yield poor healing due to the complicated anatomy and physiology of bone tissue, as well as the limitations of medical technology. Bone tissue engineering offers a promising alternative strategy of healing severe bone injuries by utilizing the body's natural biological response to tissue damage in conjunction with engineering principles. O...

Abstract We have assessed the effect of CaO–P 2 O 5 –Na 2 O-based sintering additives on mechanical and biological properties of hydroxyapatite (HAp) ceramics. Five different compositions of sintering additives were selected and prepared by mixing of CaO, P 2 O 5 , and Na 2 CO 3 powders. 2.5 wt% of each additive was combined with commercial HAp powder, separately, followed by ball milling, and sintering at 1250°C and 1300°C in a muffle furnace. Green and sintered densities of the compacts were a...

Abstract Borosilicate glass powder with a softening point of 821 °C was prepared by crushing Pyrex ® borosilicate glass fragments. Hydroxyapatite (HA) ceramics and HA/borosilicate glass (50 wt.%) composites were prepared by slip casting. The influence of borosilicate glass on the densification and phase change of hydroxyapatite was studied over sintering temperatures from 500 to 1200 °C. It was found that the borosilicate glass inhibited the decomposition of HA phase and enhanced the densificati...

Porous calcium phosphates have important biomedical applications such as bone defect fillers, tissue engineering scaffolds and drug delivery systems. While a number of methods to produce the porous calcium phosphate ceramics have been reported, this study aimed to develop a new fabrication method. The new method involved the use of polyurethane foams to produce highly porous calcium phosphate cements (CPCs). By firing the porous CPCs at 1200 °C, the polyurethane foams were burnt off and the CPCs...

Abstract Alumina reinforced calcium phosphate porous implants were manufactured to improve the mechanical strength while maintaining the bioactivity of calcium phosphate ceramics. The alumina porous bodies, which provided the mechanical strength, were fabricated by a polyurethane sponge method and multiple coating techniques resulted in the porous bodies with a 90–75% porosity and a compressive strength of up to ∼6 MPa. The coating of hydroxyapatite (HAp) or tricalcium phosphate ( β -TCP) was pe...

We aimed to generate periodontal ligament (PDL) tissue-like structures from a multipotent human PDL cell line using three-dimensional (3D) bioprinting technology and to incorporate these structures with bioactive core materials to develop a new biohybrid implant system. After 3D bioprinting, single-cell spheroids were able to form 3D tubular structures (3DTBs). We established three types of complexes using 3DTBs and different core materials: 3DTB-titanium core (TIC), 3DTB-hydroxyapatite core (HA...

Abstract Biphasic hydroxyapatite/β-tricalcium phosphate foams were prepared using the replication technique starting from a precipitated hydroxyapatite (Ca10(PO4)6(OH)2: HAP) powder, and sodium glycerophosphate (GP). The effect of the grinding time, solid loading, dispersant amount, and etching, replication, and sintering processes were investigated. The SEM, OEM and FTIR analyses proved that the surface of the polyurethane template must be treated with NaOH solution to make it more hydrophilic ...

Abstract Synthetic scaffolds exhibiting bone repair ability equal to that of autogenous bone are required in the fields of orthopedics and dentistry. A suitable synthetic bone graft substitute should induce osteogenic differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells, osteogenesis, and angiogenesis. In this study, three types of honeycomb blocks (HCBs), composed of hydroxyapatite (HAp), β-tricalcium phosphate (TCP), and carbonate apatite (CO3Ap), were fabricated, and the effects of HCB composition on bo...

Abstract The present study investigated the effects of hydroxyapatite (HA) reinforced with yttria on porous scaffolds fabricated via honeycomb ceramic extrusion. Yttria was selected as it has been demonstrated to toughen other ceramics. Moreover, yttria has been surmised to suppress dehydroxylation in HA, a characteristic that prefigures decomposition thereof during sintering into mechanically weaker phases. However, the compressive strength of yttria-reinforced hydroxyapatite (Y-HA) porous scaf...
