Development and Characterisation of Completely Degradable Composite Tissue Engineering Scaffolds Book Review:

ABSTRACT The field of Tissue Engineering has developed in response to the shortcomings associated to the replacement of tissues lost to disease or trauma: donor tissue rejection, chronic inflammation, and donor tissue shortages. The driving force behind Tissue Engineering is to avoid these problems by creating biological substitutes capable of replacing the damaged tissue. This is done by combining scaffolds, cells and signals in order to create living, physiological, three-dimensional tissues. Scaffolds are porous biodegradable structures that are meant to be colonised by cells and degrade in time with tissue generation. Scaffold design and development is mainly an engineering challenge, and is the goal of this PhD thesis. The main aim of this thesis is to develop and characterise scaffolds for Tissue Engineering applications. Specifically, its objectives are: 1. To study, optimise and characterise two scaffold processing methods: Solvent Casting and Phase Separation. This is done by experiment design analysis. 2. To characterise the degradation, surface properties, and cellular behaviour of the scaffolds produced. The scaffolds are made of a composite of polylactic acid polymer and a calcium phosphate soluble glass. The comparison of the two processing methods reveals that in general, the solvent cast scaffolds have higher porosities and lower mechanical properties than the phase-separated ones. Two compositions containing 20 weight % and 50 weight % of glass particles were chosen for further characterisations including degradation, surface properties and cellular behaviour. The degradation of the scaffolds was studied for a period of 10 weeks. The evolution of various parameters such as: morphology, weight loss, mechanical properties, thermal transitions and porosity, was monitored. Scaffolds produced via solvent casting were found to be more severely affected by degradation than phase-separated ones. The surface properties of the scaffolds were measured by model.

Characterization of Biomaterials Book Review:

In order to enhance the application potential of scaffolds in tissue engineering, comprehensive characterization of scaffold micro- and macro-structure, porosity, permeability and mechanical properties are required. In addition, before in vivo studies can be carried out, a complete assessment of the in vitro behavior of scaffolds, e.g. in selected cell culture studies, is required. The present chapter revises the wide range of methods applied to characterize scaffolds and emphasizes the need for a combination of different characterization techniques for understanding scaffold performance required for successful bone regeneration.

Fabrication and Characterisation of 3 Dimensional Scaffold for Tissue Engineering Application Via Microstereolithography Technique Book Review:

Microstereolithography is a method used for rapid prototyping of polymeric and ceramic components. This technique converts a computer-aided design (CAD) to a three dimensional (3D) model, and enables layer-per-layer fabrication curing a liquid resin with UV-light or laser source. However, the use of stereolithography in tissue engineering has not been significantly explored possibly due to the lack of commercially available implantable or biocompatible materials from the SL industry. This thesis seeks to develop a range of new bio-compatible/degradable materials that are compatible with a commercial 3D direct manufacture system (envisionTEC Desktop). Firstly, development and modification of microstereolithography equipments were undertaken in order to allow some understanding on the techniques and the process involved in microstereolithography technique. Secondly, a selection of multifunctional polymer and calcium phosphate were studied in order to formulate biodegradable photopolymer resin for specific tissue engineering applications. A 3D structure was successfully fabricated from the formulated photocurable resins. They were then sintered at high temperature for polymer removal, to obtain a ceramic of the desired porosity. Mechanical properties, morphology and calcium phosphate content of the sintered polymers were characterised and investigated with SEM and XRD, respectively. The addition of calcium phosphate coupled with high temperature sintering, had a significant effect on the mechanical properties exhibited by the bioceramic. The successful fabrication of novel bioceramic polymer composite with MSL technique offers the possibility of designing complex tissue scaffolds with optimum mechanical properties for specific tissue engineering applications.

This is done by experiment design analysis. Ø To characterize the behavior of the scaffolds produced. The scaffolds are prepared using a biodegradable polymer polycaprolactone by thermally induced phase separation technique using solid-liquid phase separation. The porosity, crystallinity and pore size was characterized using scanning electron microscopy (SEM), differential scanning calorimeter (DSC), Mercury porosimeter, and X-ray diffraction (XRD). The parameters that found to influence the architecture of the scaffolds were freezing temperature, freezing medium and polymer concentration. The freezing temperature was found to have a profound effect on the pore size and final morphology of the porous structures. The degree of crystallinity determined using XRD was comparable with that of the as received PCL. The porosity of the structures was found to be 90-97%. The porosity of the PCL structures can be controlled by the concentration of the polymer solution used. Micrographs of the samples from the SEM revealed that the pore size was smaller when the polymer soluti.

Characterization of Biomaterials Book Review:

In joint replacement surgery with suboptimal bone, allograft materials are often used to achieve biological fixation of the metallic implant to the host bone and reducing the implant fixation time. The most commonly used techniques are cemented and hydroxyapatite (HA)-coated metallic implants. Typically, HA coatings are suggested for patients with better bone stock, whereas recommended implant fixation process for most other osteoporotic patients is bone cements. In general, there is a long-standing need to improve the performance of hip and other devices for longer in vivo implant lifetime that can help in reducing the number of revision surgeries, as well as minimizing physical and mental trauma to the patient. To achieve these goals, it is important to understand the mechanical and biological properties of coatings that can influence not only its short- and long-term bioactivity but also life span in vivo. Over the years, it has been recognized that the stability of a coated implant is governed by its physical and mechanical properties. A coating that separates from the implant provides no advantage over an uncoated implant and undesirable due to problems with debris materials, which can lead to osteolysis. Therefore, it is important to properly characterize the coated implants in terms of its physical and mechanical properties. In this chapter, specific details on coating characterization techniques including sample dimensions, sample preparation, experimental procedure and data interpretation are discussed. In particular, the standards and requirements of regulatory organizations are presented elucidating the significance and use of each characterization. It is important to appreciate that mechanical properties of coatings can only be determined with certain coating specification such as coating thickness. This chapter is designed even for non-experts to follow mechanical property characterizations of coatings on medical implants.
