High porosity of scaffold is always accompanied by poor mechanical property; the aim of this study was to enhance the strength and modulus of the highly porous scaffold of nanohydroxyapatite/polyamide66 (n-HA/PA66) by coating chitosan (CS) and to investigate the effect of CS content on the scaffold physical properties and cytological properties. The results show that CS coating can reinforce the scaffold effectively. The compress modulus and strength of the CS coated n-HA/PA66 scaffolds are improved to 32.71 and 2.38 MPa, respectively, being about six times and five times of those of the uncoated scaffolds. Meanwhile, the scaffolds still exhibit a highly interconnected porous structure and the porosity is approximate about 78%, slightly lower than the value (84%) of uncoated scaffold. The cytological properties of scaffolds were also studied in vitro by cocultured with osteoblast-like MG63 cells. The cytological experiments demonstrate that the reinforced scaffolds display favorable cytocompatibility and have no significant difference with the uncoated n-HA/PA66 scaffolds. The CS reinforced n-HA/PA66 scaffolds can meet the basic mechanical requirement of bone tissue engineering scaffold, presenting a potential for biomedical application in bone reconstruction and repair. © 2011 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

This paper describes the design and preparation of the non-biological components (the “hardware”) of a conceptually novel bioartificial pancreas (BAP) to correct diabetes. The key components of the hardware are (1) a thin (5–10 μm) semipermeable amphiphilic co-network (APCN) membrane [i.e., a membrane of cocontinuous poly(dimethyl acryl amide) (PDMAAm)/polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) domains cross-linked by polymethylhydrosiloxane (PMHS)] expressly created for macroencapsulation and immunoisolation ...

Based on a biomimetic conception, nano-hydroxyapatite (n-HA)/polyamide66 (PA66) composite scaffolds were prepared with anisotropic properties both in morphology and mechanical behavior. A novel improved thermally induced phase separation (TIPS) technique was developed to generate orientation-structured scaffolds for tissue engineering. The physiochemical, morphological, and mechanical properties of the resultant scaffolds were evaluated. According to the results, the improved TIPS method exhibit...

Chitosan (CS) was used to modify the surface of apatite-wollastonite bioactive glass ceramic (AW GC) scaffold to prepare AW/CS composite scaffold. The in vitro bioactivity of the AW/CS composite scaffold was investigated by simulated body fluid (SBF) soaking experiment. Cell growth on the surface of the material was evaluated by co-culturing osteogenic marrow stromal cells (MSCs) of rabbits with the scaffold. The results showed that the compressive strength of AW GC scaffold was improved dramati...

Patch closure is necessary to achieve tension-free repair in large congenital diaphragmatic hernia. However, the use of prosthetic material may lead to granulation, allergic reaction, infection, recurrence of hernia, and thoracic deformity. Tissue engineering may become an alternative treatment strategy for diaphragmatic hernia repair, since the regenerated autologous tissue is expected to grow potentially without rejection or infection. We evaluated the efficacy of diaphragmatic hernia repair i...

The macrostructure and morphology as well as mechanical strength of the scaffolds were characterized. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) derived from bone marrow of neonatal rabbits were cultured, expanded and seeded on n-HA/PA scaffolds. The MSC/scaffold constructs were cultured for up to 7 days and the adhesion, proliferation and differentiation of...

Cartilage defects as a result of disease or injury have a very limited ability to heal spontaneously. Recently, tissue engineering and local therapeutic gene delivery systems have been paid much attention in the cartilage natural healing process. Gene-activated matrix (GAM) blends these two strategies, serving as local bioreactor with therapeutic agents expression and also providing a structural template to fill the lesion defects for cell adhesion, proliferation and synthesis of extracellular m...

Abstract Tissue engineering is an increasingly popular method for repairing bone defects. However, repair of bone defects over 30 mm using tissue-engineering methods is a difficult clinical problem. In this study, we used a goat shank model to evaluate the bone-regenerating efficacy of a novel nano-hydroxyapatite/collagen/PLLA (nHACP) composite reinforced by chitin fibres. Forty adult male goats with 40 mm defects in shank at the same anatomic site were divided into four groups. The first group ...

In this paper, porous bone scaffolds reinforced with chitosan fibres were prepared. The porosity and pore size of the reinforced scaffolds were both satisfactory. The reinforced scaffolds resembled natural bone in both components and crystal size. Only if the length of the fibres was no shorter than the critical length, could the fibres reinforce the material. We have proposed an empirical formula to calculate the critical length of the fibres for the porous materials and determined the modifyin...

A study is made of the role of flaw state on the strength properties of brittle ceramic coating layers bonded to soft polycarbonate substrates. We introduce Vickers radial cracks at prescribed loads into the coating undersurfaces prior to bonding to control the sizes and locations of the starting flaws. A spherical indenter is then loaded on the top bilayer surfaces, directly above the Vickers indentation sites, subjecting the radial cracks to flexural tensile stress. Radial crack responses are ...

Abstract A novel method for the fabrication of hybrid polymer/ceramic porous scaffolds with core/shell struts is developed. Robocasting with coaxial needles is used to deposit beta-tricalcium phosphate scaffolds with hollow rods, which are subsequently filled with a polycaprolactone melt by suction. The polymeric core provides outstanding improvement of the toughness of the structure in bending, with strain energy density increasing nearly two orders of magnitude and continuous polymeric fibres ...

Abstract Biomimetic nanocomposites containing hydroxyapatite and natural polymers are promising candidates for bone grafting. In this work, a tricomponent bioactive nanocomposite (nHA-CH-TFSP) assembling nano-hydroxyapatite (nHA), Chitosan (CH) and Trigonella foenum graecum seed polysaccharide (TFSP) was developed using co-precipitation method and investigated against bicomponent nHA-CH nanocomposite for bone tissue engineering. In contrast to nHA-CH nanocomposite, nHA-CH-TFSP nanocomposite exhi...

Abstract Necrotic tissues are the dead tissues present in the wounded areas, which need to be removed for rapid wound healing. Various biopolymer-based dressings have been exploited to heal infected wounds, but with limited success. In a quest to develop an effective and economic wound dressing, a biodegradable dressing containing chitosan nanoparticles has been successfully developed. Chitosan nanoparticles were prepared by ionic gelation method and then assembled into the porous chitosan dress...

ABSTRACTThis is a comprehensive review regarding the particulars of phase inversion technique and its significance in polyamide films. Phase inversion is a versatile technique to form thin films of neat polyamide, composite, and blend system. Phase inversion can be induced by polymer solution immersion in nonsolvent, contact with nonsolvent vapor, thermal treatment, solvent evaporation, and quenching. Choice of solvent/nonsolvent system, polyamide, additive, coagulation bath, and film casting co...

Abstract Here, zirconium oxide nanoparticles (ZrO 2 NPs) were incorporated for the first time in organic-inorganic hybrid composites containing chitosan, poly(ethylene glycol) and nano-hydroxypatite (CS-PEG-HA) to develop bone-like nanocomposites for bone tissue engineering application. These nanocomposites were characterized by FT-IR, XRD, TEM combined with SAED. SEM images and porosity measurements revealed highly porous structure having pore size of less than 1 μm to 10 μm. Enhanced water abs...

Here, the fabrication and characterization of porous magnetic nanocomposites was carried out via the blending of chitosan, polyethylene glycol and nano-hydroxyapatite–Fe3O4. Scanning electron microscope images revealed a highly interconnected macro- and micro-porous structure. These nanocomposites showed good water uptake abilities and have good antimicrobial properties. The tensile strengths of these nanocomposites were enhanced significantly compared to previously reported results, after the a...
