Electrospun nanofibrous structure: a novel scaffold for tissue engineering.
TLDR
A novel poly(D,L-lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA) structure with a unique architecture produced by an electrospinning process has been developed for tissue-engineering applications, which acts to support and guide cell growth.
Bone tissue engineering: recent advances and challenges.
TLDR
The fundamentals of bone tissue engineering are discussed, highlighting the current state of this field, and the recent advances of biomaterial and cell-based research, as well as approaches used to enhance bone regeneration.
Biomedical Applications of Biodegradable Polymers.
TLDR
This review summarizes the most recent advances in the field over the past 4 years, specifically highlighting new and interesting discoveries in tissue engineering and drug delivery applications.
Bone-Graft Substitutes: Facts, Fictions, and Applications
TLDR
It is estimated that more than 500,000 bone-grafting procedures are performed annually in the United States, with approximately half of these procedures related to spine fusion, indicating a shortage in the availability of musculoskeletal donor tissue traditionally used in these reconstructions.
Bioresorbable nanofiber-based systems for wound healing and drug delivery: optimization of fabrication parameters.
TLDR
PLAGA nanofibers show potential as antibiotic delivery systems for the treatment of wounds and can be tailored to desired diameters through modifications in processing parameters, and that antibiotics such as cefazolin can be incorporated into these nan ofibers.
Tissue engineering: orthopedic applications.
TLDR
This chapter presents a review of current methods and new tissue-engineering techniques for the treatment of disorders affecting bone, ligament, and cartilage.
The COVID-19 Pandemic: a Call to Action to Identify and Address Racial and Ethnic Disparities
TLDR
This work is the first to present the earliest available data in the peer-reviewed literature on the racial and ethnic distribution of COVID-19-confirmed cases and fatalities in the state of Connecticut and seeks to explode the myth of Black immunity to the virus.
Unicompartmental Versus Total Knee Arthroplasty in the Same Patient
TLDR
It was concluded that with proper patient selection, UKA more frequently provides a subjectively “better” knee along with increased ROM.
