Poly(D,L-lactide)/hydroxyapatite composite tissue engineering scaffolds prepared by stereolithography
Melchels, Ferry P.W., Feijen, Jan, & Grijpma, Dirk W. (2009) Poly(D,L-lactide)/hydroxyapatite composite tissue engineering scaffolds prepared by stereolithography. In 2nd China-Europe Symposium on Biomaterials in Regenerative Medicine, 16-20 November 2009, Barcelona.
Hydroxyapatite (HAP) is a major component of bone and has osteoconductive and -inductive properties. It has been successfully applied as a substrate in bone tissue engineering, either with or without a biodegradable polymer such as polycaprolactone or polylactide. Recently, we have developed a stereolithography resin based on poly(D,L-lactide) (PDLLA) and a non-reactive diluent, that allows for the preparation of tissue engineering scaffolds with designed architectures. In this work, designed porous composite structures of PDLLA and HAP are prepared by stereolithography.
