BC enhanced photocurable hydrogel based on 3D bioprinting for nasal cartilage repair

International Journal of Polymeric Materials and Polymeric Biomaterials 2023 Volume 72, Issue 9, Pages 702-713

The repair of nasal cartilage lesions and defects is still a difficult problem in nasal surgery, and nasal cartilage tissue engineering will be an effective way to solve this problem. Hydrogel has excellent application potential in tissue engineering. In order to produce a 3D printable scaffold for cartilage regeneration, we prepared gelatin methacryloyl (GelMA)/hyaluronic acid methacryloyl (HAMA)/bacterial cellulose (BC) composite hydrogel. The composite hydrogel was characterized by swelling, mechanical properties, and printing performance test. Compared with GelMA/HAMA hydrogel, the addition of BC not only significantly enhanced the mechanical properties of the hydrogels, but also improved the printing fidelity. At the…

The Application of Three-Dimensional Printing in Animal Model of Augmentation Rhinoplasty

Annals of Biomedical Engineering 2015 Volume 43, Issue 9, Pages 2153-2162

The role of three-dimensional (3D) printing has expanded in diverse areas in medicine. As plastic surgery needs to fulfill the different demands from diverse individuals, the applications of tailored 3D printing will become indispensable. In this study, we evaluated the feasibility of using 3D-printed polycaprolactone (PCL) scaffold seeded with fibrin/chondrocytes as a new dorsal augmentation material for rhinoplasty. The construct was surgically implanted on the nasal dorsum in the subperiosteal plane of six rabbits. The implants were harvested 4 and 12 weeks after implantation and evaluated by gross morphological assessment, radiographic imaging, and histologic examination. The initial shape of the…
