A review on stereolithography and its applications in biomedical engineering.
Stereolithography is a solid freeform technique (SFF) that was introduced in the late 1980s. Although many other techniques have been developed since then, stereolithography remains one of the mostExpand

A review of rapid prototyping techniques for tissue engineering purposes
Rapid prototyping (RP) is a common name for several techniques, which read in data from computer-aided design (CAD) drawings and manufacture automatically three-dimensional objects layer-by-layerExpand

The in vivo and in vitro degradation behavior of poly(trimethylene carbonate).
The in vivo and in vitro degradation behavior of poly(trimethylene carbonate) (PTMC) polymers with number average molecular weights of 69 x 10(3), 89 x 10(3), 291 x 10(3) and 457 x 10(3)g/molExpand

A poly(D,L-lactide) resin for the preparation of tissue engineering scaffolds by stereolithography.
Porous polylactide constructs were prepared by stereolithography, for the first time without the use of reactive diluents. Star-shaped poly(D,L-lactide) oligomers with 2, 3 and 6 arms wereExpand

Effects of the architecture of tissue engineering scaffolds on cell seeding and culturing.
The advance of rapid prototyping techniques has significantly improved control over the pore network architecture of tissue engineering scaffolds. In this work, we have assessed the influence ofExpand

Mathematically defined tissue engineering scaffold architectures prepared by stereolithography.
The technologies employed for the preparation of conventional tissue engineering scaffolds restrict the materials choice and the extent to which the architecture can be designed. Here we show theExpand

The influence of the scaffold design on the distribution of adhering cells after perfusion cell seeding.
In natural tissues, the extracellular matrix composition, cell density and physiological properties are often non-homogeneous. Here we describe a model system, in which the distribution of cellsExpand

Delivery systems for the treatment of degenerated intervertebral discs.
The intervertebral disc (IVD) is the most avascular and acellular tissue in the body and therefore prone to degeneration. During IVD degeneration, the balance between anabolic and catabolic processesExpand

Magnetic targeting of surface-modified superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles yields antibacterial efficacy against biofilms of gentamicin-resistant staphylococci.
Biofilms on biomaterial implants are hard to eradicate with antibiotics due to the protection offered by the biofilm mode of growth, especially when caused by antibiotic-resistant strains.Expand

Antimicrobial effects of positively charged surfaces on adhering Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria.
The infection of biomaterials is determined by an interplay of adhesion and surface growth of the infecting organisms. In this study, the antimicrobial effects on adhering bacteria of a positivelyExpand
