Biodegradable hydroxyapatite - Polymer composites

2001-04-01
The fracture of bone due to trauma or due to natural aging is one of the most frequent types of tissue failures. Treatment frequently requires the implantation of ct temporary or permanent prosthesis. The implanted materials may include the components of artificial joints, plates, and screws for fracture fixation. Typically, such implants are intended only to provide structural support or to serve as templates for bone re-growth. In general they are intended to remain in place for the life of the patient or to be removed in a second surgical procedure. This report provides a shout review of the synthetic reconstructive bone implants. Following this, the rationale ann basics of the biodegradable hydroxyapatite-polymer composite approach are described.

Biomechanics of porous ceramic implants used in long-bones segmental defect healing
Balçık, Cenk; Tokdemir, Turgut; Korkusuz, Feza; Department of Engineering Sciences (2002)
Reconstruction of bone in segmental defect is a challenging orthopedic application in which nonunion is seen due to loss of tissue and atrophic bonding inability. Calcium and phosphate based ceramics are the new generation of bone grafts to be used in large segmental defects as they show excellent biocompatibility, biodegradability and osteoconductivity. Ideal ceramic composition, configuration and material property compatible to cortical bone is yet to be determined. It is hypothesized that long-bones segm...
Corrosion Resistance and Cytocompatibility of Magnesium-Calcium Alloys Modified with Zinc- or Gallium-Doped Calcium Phosphate Coatings
TAMAY, DİLARA GÖKSU; Gokyer, Seyda; Schmidt, Jurgen; Vladescu, Alina; HURİ, PINAR; Hasırcı, Vasıf Nejat; Hasırcı, Nesrin (2022-01-12)
In orthopedic surgery, metals are preferred to support or treat damaged bones due to their high mechanical strength. However, the necessity for a second surgery for implant removal after healing creates problems. Therefore, biodegradable metals, especially magnesium (Mg), gained importance, although their extreme susceptibility to galvanic corrosion limits their applications. The focus of this study was to control the corrosion of Mg and enhance its biocompatibility. For this purpose, surfaces of magnesium-...
Development of a siRNA delivery system for the treatment of osteoporosis
Sezlev Bilecen, Deniz; Hasırcı, Vasıf Nejat; Uludağ, Hasan; Department of Biotechnology (2018)
Osteoporosis, the most common disease of bone, is a skeletal disorder associated with low bone mass, increase in bone fragility and in susceptibility to fractures. The high bone resorption rate is shown to be due to increased number and activity of the osteoclasts. Receptor Activator of Nuclear Factor kappa B (RANK)/ Receptor Activator of Nuclear Factor kappa B Ligand (RANKL) system plays a crucial role in osteoclast differentiation and bone remodeling. RANKL participates in differentiation and activation o...
Etiology of senile osteoporosis - A hypothesis
Atik, O. Sahap; Uslu, M. Murad; Eksioglu, Fatih; Satana, Tolgay (Ovid Technologies (Wolters Kluwer Health), 2006-02-01)
Osteoporosis is a major health problem characterized by compromised bone strength predisposing patients to an increased risk of fracture. It may cause morbidity and mortality in elderly men and women. The etiologic factors that lead to senile osteoporosis still are unclear.
Synthesis of selenium-incorporated alpha-tricalcium phosphate and evaluation of its cement-type reactivity
Baştuğ Azer, Bersu; Durucan, Caner; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2019)
In the case of bone defects and damages synthetic bone grafts have been widely used for filling the damaged parts. Alpha-tricalcium phosphate (α-TCP) is an attractive calcium orthophosphate as replacement of hard tissues. It converts from powder form to hardened apatite, by cement-type reaction in aqueous solutions, which is therefore a promising hard bone tissue analog and clinically used in bone defect filling operations. In this concept adding therapeutic function to the hardened cement products is an ad...
