Zinc and zirconium were selected as the alloying elements in biodegradable magnesium alloys, considering their strengthening effect and good biocompatibility. The degradation rate, hydrogen evolution, ion release, surface layer and in vitro cytotoxicity of two Mg-Zn-Zr alloys, i.e. ZK30 and ZK60, and a WE-type alloy (Mg-Y-RE-Zr) were investigated by means(More)
Bioactive composite bone cements were obtained by incorporation of tricalcium silicate (Ca3SiO5, C3S) into a brushite bone cement composed of beta-tricalcium phosphate [beta-Ca3(PO4)2, beta-TCP] and monocalcium phosphate monohydrate [Ca(H2PO4)2.H2O, MCPM], and the properties of the new cements were studied and compared with pure brushite cement. The results(More)
Three-dimensional printing technologies have shown distinct advantages to create porous scaffolds with designed macropores for application in bone tissue engineering. However, until now, 3D-printed bioceramic scaffolds only possessing a single type of macropore have been reported. Generally, those scaffolds with a single type of macropore have relatively(More)
Although inorganic bone cements such as calcium phosphate cements have been widely applied in orthopaedic and dental fields because of their self-setting ability, development of high-strength bone cement with bioactivity and biodegradability remains a major challenge. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to prepare a tricalcium silicate/magnesium(More)
In this study, a biphasic injectable bone substitute based on beta-dicalcium silicate (Ca(2)SiO(4)) and plaster of Paris (CaSO(4).1/2H(2)O) is presented, and its behavior as cement was studied and compared to that of pure Ca(2)SiO(4) paste. The results demonstrated that the setting time of the workable Ca(2)SiO(4)/CaSO(4).1/2H(2)O pastes was only 15 min,(More)
To improve the bioactivity and degradation behavior of biodegradable magnesium, biodegradable metal matrix composites with the ZK30 magnesium alloy as the matrix and bioactive glass (BG, 45S5) as the reinforcement were prepared. The microstructures of the ZK30-BG composites showed homogeneous dispersion of BG particles throughout the matrix. XRD and EDX(More)
Self-setting biomaterials are widely used for tissue repair and regeneration. Calcium sulfate hemihydrate has been used for many years as a self-setting biomaterial due to its good setting properties. However, too fast a degradation rate and lack of bioactivity have limited its application in orthopaedic field. Herein, tricalcium silicate was introduced(More)
In this paper, we obtained a novel bone cement composed of tricalcium silicate (Ca(3)SiO(5); C(3)S) and monocalcium phosphate monohydrate (MCPM). The weight ratio of MCPM in the cement is 0, 10, 20, and 30%. The initial setting time was dramatically reduced from 90 min to 30 min as the content of MCPM reached 20%. The workable paste with a liquid/powder(More)
In this article, a novel bone cement composed of tricalcium silicate (Ca(3)SiO(5); C(3)S) and calcium carbonate (CaCO(3)) was prepared with the weight percent of CaCO(3) in the range of 0, 10, 20, 30, and 40%. The initial setting time was dramatically reduced from 90 to 45 min as the content of CaCO(3) increased from 0 to 40%, and the workable paste with a(More)
In this study, a novel low temperature setting calcium phosphate-silicate cement was obtained by mixing CaHPO(4) x 2H(2)O (DCPD) and Ca(3)SiO(5) (C(3)S) with 0.75 M sodium phosphate buffers (pH = 7.0) as liquid phase. The self-setting properties of the obtained DCPD/C(3)S paste with liquid to powder ratio (L/P) of 0.6 ml/g, such as setting times,(More)
