This study aims to develop a novel intraperitoneal two- or three-layered patch with immunomodulatory property for treatment of hernia, regeneration of abdominal wall and prevention of intraperitoneal adhesions. Polypropylene (PP) mesh, middle layer, was intended to provide mechanical support whereas pullulan (PUL) hydrogel coating layer was designed to prevent intraperitoneal adhesions. Fibroin/chitosan oligosaccharide lactate (F/COS) layer electrospun on one side of pullulan was chosen for immunomodulation and abdominal wall regeneration. Physical and mechanical properties and regenerative capacity of intraperitoneal patches were determined. Immunomodulatory property of electrospun layer and whole patch was studied by determining nitric oxide amount produced by RAW 264.7 macrophages. 25 % (w/v) PUL hydrogel and F/COS with 90:10 (w/w) ratio yielded optimal results. Here, we report that fabricated intraperitoneal patches successfully prevented cell adhesion on one side and increased cell viability and proliferation on other side, along with immunomodulation, in vitro.

Nanosized CaP-silk fibroin-PCL-PEG-PCL/PCL based bilayer membranes for guided bone regeneration
Türkkan, Sibel; Pazarçeviren, Ahmet Engin; Keskin, Dilek; Machin, Nesrin E.; Duygulu, Ozgur; Tezcaner, Ayşen (2017-11-01)
Guided bone regeneration (GBR) concept has been developed to prevent the formation of non-functional scar tissue layer on defect site by undertaking barrier role. In this study, a new bilayer membrane which consisted of one layer of electrospun silk fibroin/PCL-PEG-PCL incorporating nanocalcium phosphate (SPCA)(1) and one layer of PCL membrane was developed for GBR. To improve the osteoconductivity of membranes, nanosized calcium phosphate particles synthesized by Flame Spray Pyrolysis method were incorpora...
Flow-induced vibration analysis of constricted artery models with surrounding soft tissue
Salman, Huseyin Enes; Yazıcıoğlu, Yiğit (2017-10-01)
Arterial stenosis is a vascular pathology which leads to serious cardiovascular diseases. Blood flow through a constriction generates sound and vibration due to fluctuating turbulent pressures. Generated vibro-acoustic waves propagate through surrounding soft tissues and reach the skin surface and may provide valuable insight for noninvasive diagnostic purposes. Motivated by the aforementioned phenomena, vibration of constricted arteries is investigated employing computational models. The flow-induced press...
Numerical aspects of anisotropic failure in soft biological tissues favor energy-based criteria: A rate-dependent anisotropic crack phase-field model
Gueltekin, Osman; Dal, Hüsnü; Holzapfel, Gerhard A. (2018-04-01)
A deeper understanding to predict fracture in soft biological tissues is of crucial importance to better guide and improve medical monitoring, planning of surgical interventions and risk assessment of diseases such as aortic dissection, aneurysms, atherosclerosis and tears in tendons and ligaments. In our previous contribution (Gultekin et al., 2016) we have addressed the rupture of aortic tissue by applying a holistic geometrical approach to fracture, namely the crack phase-field approach emanating from va...

The estimation of rupture in fibrous soft tissues has emerged as a central task in medical monitoring and risk assessment of diseases such as aortic dissection and aneurysms. In an attempt to address the challenges we have established a computational framework within the context of crack phase-field modeling and proposed an energy-based anisotropic failure criterion based on the distinction of isotropic and anisotropic material responses. Numerically we compare that criterion with other anisotropic failure ...

The first application of nanocrystal (NC)-encoded microbeads to clinical proteomics is demonstrated by multiplexed detection of circulating autoantibodies, markers of systemic sclerosis. Two-color complexes, consisting of NC-encoded, antigen-covered beads, anti-antigen antibody or clinical serum samples, and dye-tagged detecting antibodies, were observed using flow cytometry assays and on the surface of single beads. The results of flow cytometry assays correlated with the ELISA technique and provided clear...
