Fabrication and cellular interactions of nanoporous tantalum oxide
Uslu, Ece; Öztatlı, Hayriye; Garipcan, Bora; Ercan, Batur (Wiley, 2020-10-01)
Tantalum possesses remarkable chemical and mechanical properties, and thus it is considered to be one of the next generation implant materials. However, the biological properties of tantalum remain to be improved for its u...
Facile control of hydroxyapatite particle morphology by utilization of calcium carbonate templates at room temperature
Oral, Çağatay M.; Çalışkan, Arda; Kapusuz, Derya; Ercan, Batur (Elsevier BV, 2020-09-01)
Hydroxyapatite (HAp, Ca-10(PO4)(6)(OH)(2)) particles are widely used in orthopedic applications due to their chemical resemblance to the inorganic component of bone tissue. Since physical and chemical properties of HAp par...
Calcium carbonate polymorph dictates in vitro osteoblast proliferation
Oral, Cagatay M.; Ercan, Batur; KAPUSUZ, DERYA (2020-06-11)
Calcium carbonate (CaCO3) is a widely used material in biomedical applications owing to its biocompatibility and widespread occurrence in nature, especially in the exoskeletons of marine organisms. The ability to undergo p...
Mineral-Doped Poly(L-lactide) Acid Scaffolds Enriched with Exosomes Improve Osteogenic Commitment of Human Adipose-Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells
Gandolfi, Maria Giovanna; Gardin, Chiara; Zamparini, Fausto; Ferroni, Letizia; Esposti, Micaela Degli; Parchi, Greta; Ercan, Batur; Manzoli, Lucia; Fava, Fabio; Fabbri, Paola; Prati, Carlo; Zavan, Barbara (2020-03-01)
Exosomes derived from mesenchymal stem cells are extracellular vesicles released to facilitate cell communication and function. Recently, polylactic acid (PLA), calcium silicates (CaSi), and dicalcium phosphate dihydrate (...
Synthesis of calcium carbonate microspheres via inert gas bubbling for orthopedic applications
Oral, Cagatay M.; Caliskan, Arda; Goctu, Yagmur; KAPUSUZ, DERYA; Ercan, Batur (Elsevier BV, 2020-02-15)
Calcium carbonate (CaCO3) microspheres consisting of vaterite polymorph have been widely used in biomedical applications. Specifically, vaterite microspheres having hollow cores showed significant potential in drug deliver...
Efficient fabrication of ultrafine-grained 316L stainless steel surfaces for orthopaedic applications
Tufan, Yiğithan; Demir, Eyüp Can; Efe, Mert; Ercan, Batur (Informa UK Limited, 2019-10-13)
Commonly used severe plastic deformation (SPD) methods are suitable for fabrication of bulk nano and ultrafine-grained metals. Drawbacks of these methods include durability of dies, geometrical restrictions and reduced duc...
Calcium Phosphate Mineralization on Calcium Carbonate Particle Incorporated Silk-Fibroin Composites
Kapusuz, Derya; Ercan, Batur (2019-09-01)
In this study, three anhydrous forms of calcium carbonate, namely vaterite, aragonite and calcite, with distinct morphologies were incorporated inside silk-fibroin to fabricate composite scaffolds for tissue engineering ap...
Ti6Al4V foams having nanotubular surfaces for orthopaedic applications
Izmir, Merve; Tufan, Yiğithan; Tan, Guher; Ercan, Batur (Wiley, 2019-07-26)
Despite the widespread use of Ti6Al4V in orthopaedics, the bioinert nature of this alloy limits its biological fixation with the bone tissue. To enhance its bone fixation, two different types of Ti6Al4V foams were fabricat...
Fabrication of micropit structures on Ti6Al4V alloy using fluoride-free anodization for orthopedic applications
Izmir, Merve; Ercan, Batur (Cambridge University Press (CUP), 2019-04-15)
Ti6Al4V alloy is commonly used in hip and knee replacements due to its high strength, ductility, wear, and corrosion resistance. Despite its optimal physical and chemical properties, Ti6Al4V based orthopedic implants have ...
Anodization of titanium alloys for orthopedic applications
Izmir, Merve; Ercan, Batur (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2019-03-01)
In recent years, nanostructured oxide films on titanium alloy surfaces have gained significant interest due to their electrical, catalytic and biological properties. In literature, there is variety of different approaches ...
