3D-printed bi-layered polymer/hydrogel construct for interfacial tissue regeneration in a canine model

Dental Materials 2022 Volume 38, Issue 8, Pages 1316-1329

Objectives There are complications in applying regenerative strategies at the interface of hard and soft tissues due to the limited designs of constructs that can accommodate different cell types in different sites. The problem originates from the challenges in the adhesion of dissimilar materials, such as polymers and hydrogels, that can be suitable for regenerating different tissues such as bone and soft tissues. This paper presents a design of a new hybrid construct in which a polymer (polycaprolactone (PCL)) membrane firmly adheres to a layer of hydrogen (gelatin). Methods PCL membranes with defined size and porosity were fabricated using 3D…

A 3D-Bioprinted Functional Module Based on Decellularized Extracellular Matrix Bioink for Periodontal Regeneration

Advanced Science 2023 Volume 10, Issue 5, Article 2205041

Poor fiber orientation and mismatched bone–ligament interface fusion have plagued the regeneration of periodontal defects by cell-based scaffolds. A 3D bioprinted biomimetic periodontal module is designed with high architectural integrity using a methacrylate gelatin/decellularized extracellular matrix (GelMA/dECM) cell-laden bioink. The module presents favorable mechanical properties and orientation guidance by high-precision topographical cues and provides a biochemical environment conducive to regulating encapsulated cell behavior. The dECM features robust immunomodulatory activity, reducing the release of proinflammatory factors by M1 macrophages and decreasing local inflammation in Sprague Dawley rats. In a clinically relevant critical-size periodontal defect model, the bioprinted module significantly enhances the…

3D-Printed Soft Membrane for Periodontal Guided Tissue Regeneration

Materials 2023 Volume 16, Issue 4, Article 1364

Objectives: The current study aimed to perform an in vivo examination using a critical-size periodontal canine model to investigate the capability of a 3D-printed soft membrane for guided tissue regeneration (GTR). This membrane is made of a specific composition of gelatin, elastin, and sodium hyaluronate that was fine-tuned and fully characterized in vitro in our previous study. The value of this composition is its potential to be employed as a suitable replacement for collagen, which is the main component of conventional GTR membranes, to overcome the cost issue with collagen. Methods: Critical-size dehiscence defects were surgically created on the buccal…

Polymer Materials And Their Usage In Veterinary Practice

Acta Tecnología 2022 Volume: 8, Issue: 4, Pages 109-115

In the field of regenerative medicine and tissue engineering, the use of such materials has been included for a short time, serving not only as a replacement for damaged or missing tissue, but also as a support for the surrounding tissues and cells. Such materials should not only be passively tolerated by the cell, but should also actively promote the growth, differentiation and other processes involved in tissue regeneration. The latest approach is the use and development of bioresorbable and biodegradable polymeric materials. Such materials, with their biocompatibility, degradability and suitable mechanical properties, support the overgrowth of new tissue. The…

Biological resurfacing in a canine model of hip osteoarthritis

Science Advances 2021 Volume 7, Issue 38, Article eabi5918

Articular cartilage has unique load-bearing properties but has minimal capacity for intrinsic repair. Here, we used three-dimensional weaving, additive manufacturing, and autologous mesenchymal stem cells to create a tissue-engineered, bicomponent implant to restore hip function in a canine hip osteoarthritis model. This resorbable implant was specifically designed to function mechanically from the time of repair and to biologically integrate with native tissues for long-term restoration. A massive osteochondral lesion was created in the hip of skeletally mature hounds and repaired with the implant or left empty (control). Longitudinal outcome measures over 6 months demonstrated that the implant dogs returned to…

3D porous Ti6Al4V-beta-tricalcium phosphate scaffolds directly fabricated by additive manufacturing

Acta Biomaterialia 2021 Volume 126, Pages 496-510

3D Ti6Al4V-beta-tricalcium phosphate (TCP) hybrid scaffolds with interconnected porous network and controllable porosity and pore size were successfully produced by three-dimensional fiber deposition (3DF). The macrostructure of scaffolds was determined by the 3D design, whereas the micro- and submicron structure were derived from the Ti6Al4V powder sintering and the crystalline TCP powder, respectively. Ti6Al4V-TCP slurry was developed for 3DF by optimizing the TCP powder size, Ti6Al4V-to-TCP powder ratio and Ti6Al4V-TCP powder content. Moreover, the air pressure and fiber deposition rate were optimized. A maximum achievable ceramic content in the Ti6Al4V-TCP slurry that enables 3DF manufacturing was 10 wt%. The chemical…
