Sol-gel deposition of hydroxyapatite coatings on porous titanium for biomedical applications [Article]
The stress shielding and the poor osseointegration in titanium implants are still problems to be resolved. In this context, this work proposes a balanced solution. Titanium samples were fabricated, with a porosity of ...
Bioactive Coatings on Porous Titanium for Biomedical Applications [Article]
Commercial pure titanium is a recognized and accepted material for cortical bone tissue substitution. However, stress-shielding phenomena and lack of osseointegration result in significant limitations. This work is focused ...
Designing bioactive porous titanium interfaces to balance mechanical properties and in vitro cells behavior towards increased osseointegration [Article]
Titanium implant failures are mainly related to stress shielding phenomenon and the poor cell interaction with host bone tissue. The development of bioactive and biomimetic Ti scaffolds for bone regeneration remains a ...
Porous Titanium surfaces to control bacteria growth: mechanical properties and sulfonated polyetheretherketone coating as antibiofounling approaches [Article]
Here, titanium porous substrates were fabricated by a space holder technique. The relationship between microstructural characteristics (pore equivalent diameter, mean free-path between pores, roughness and contact surface), ...
Balancing porosity and mechanical properties of titanium samples to favor cellular growth against bacteria [Article]
Two main problems limit the success of titanium implants: bacterial infection, which restricts their osseointegration capacity; and the stiffness mismatch between the implant and the host cortical bone, which promotes bone ...
