Computational modelling of ovine critical-sized tibial defects with implanted scaffolds and prediction of the safety of fixator removal
Computational model geometries of tibial defects with two types of implanted tissue engineering scaffolds, β-tricalcium phosphate (β-TCP) and poly-ε-caprolactone (PCL)/β-TCP, are constructed from µ-CT scan images of the ...
Evaluating the effect of increasing ceramic content on the mechanical properties, material microstructure and degradation of selective laser sintered PCL/b-TCP materials
Orthopaedic scaffold materials were fabricated from polycaprolactone (PCL) and composite PCL β-tricalcium phosphate (PCL/β-TCP) powders using selective laser sintering (SLS). Incorporating β-TCP particles is ...
Improving the finite element model accuracy of tissue engineered scaffolds produced by selective laser sintering
(Springer Verlag, 2015-01-13)
In bone tissue engineering, both geometrical and mechanical properties of a scaffold play a major part in the success of the treatment. The mechanical stresses and strains that act on cells on a scaffold in a physiological ...
