Photo-crosslinking of functionalised lactide oligomers for the fabrication of osteochondral tissue engineering scaffolds
Melchels, F.P.W., Grijpma, D.W., & Feijen, J. (2006) Photo-crosslinking of functionalised lactide oligomers for the fabrication of osteochondral tissue engineering scaffolds. In Journal of Controlled Release, Elsevier BV, Noordwijk, Netherlands, e98-e100.
In the fabrication of osteochondral tissue engineering scaffolds, the two distinct tissues impose different requirements on the architecture. Stereo-lithography is a rapid prototyping method that can be utilised to make 3D constructs with high spatial control by radical photopolymerization. In this study, biodegradable resins are developed that can be applied in stereo-lithography. Photo-crosslinked poly(lactide) networks with varying physical properties were synthesised, and by photo polymerizing in the presence of leachable particles porous scaffolds could be prepared as well.
