Anodized Tantalum Surfaces for Orthopedic Applications
Uslu, Ece; Ercan, Batur (null; 2018-04-30)
Currently used implant materials do not suffice the needs of patients mainly due to their poor osseointegration with the juxtaposed bone tissue, which ultimately leads to failure of the implant. To overcome this issue, better orthopedic implants exhibiting bioactive characteristics are required. Tantalum is a good candidate as a new generation orthopedic implant materials due to its superior mechanical and chemical properties compared to the currently-used metallic implant materials. However, its bioinert n...
Anodization of 316L stainless steel for implant applications
Erdoğan, Yaşar Kemal; Ercan, Batur (2021-06-10)
316L stainless steel (SS) surfaces were modified via anodization to form nanopit structures with aim of improving its corrosion resistance, bone cell adhesion, proliferation and enhance its bioactivity. Surface characterization studies revealed that nanopit structures were composed of Fe2O3 and Cr2O3. The in vitro results showed that nanopit surfaces enhanced bone cell proliferation. Thus, we concluded that fabrication of nanostructures on 316L SS surfaces is a promising way to enhance bone cell functions f...
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 to fabricate nanostructured oxide films. Among these methods, anodization technique, which allows fine-tuning of oxide film thickness, feature size, topography and chemistry, is one of the most popular approaches to fabricate nanostructured oxide films on titanium alloys, and it has been w...
Anodization of titanium alloys for orthopedic applications
İzmir, Merve; Ercan, Batur; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2018)
In recent years, nanostructured oxide films on titanium alloy surfaces have gained significant interest due to their electrical, catalytic and biological properties, leading to an extensive effort to engineer nanostructured oxide films on titanium and titanium alloy surfaces. In literature, there is a variety of different approaches to fabricate nanostructured oxide films, including hydrothermal treatment, sol-gel synthesis, physical vapor deposition, electrodeposition, and etc. Among these methods, electro...
Anodized 20 nm diameter nanotubular titanium for improved bladder stent applications
Alpaslan, Ece; Ercan, Batur; Webster, Thomas J. (Informa UK Limited, 2011-01-01)
Materials currently used for bladder applications often suffer from incomplete coverage by urothelial cells (cells that line the interior of the bladder and ureter) which leads to the continuous exposure of the underlying materials aggravating an immune response. In particular, a ureteral (or sometimes called an ureteric or bladder) stent is a thin tube inserted into the ureter to prevent or treat obstruction of urine flow from the kidney. The main complications with ureteral stents are infection and blocka...
