Using Dispersive Raman Spectroscopy to Assess Remodeling in Vascular Constructs used in Tissue Engineering
Tissue engineered vascular grafts (TEVGs) are a promising alternative to surgery for the treatment of thrombotic occlusion of small diameter (< 6 mm) arteries. It is important that TEVG composition prevent compliance ...
An Analysis of the Relationship between Orthopedic Drill Bit and Screw Diameter on Drilling Energy and Axial Loading Strength
The number of orthopedic procedures performed per year in the United States is expected to grow to 6.6 million by 2020 (1). Most of these surgeries involve some degree of bone drilling and screw fixation, putting many ...
Photochemical Crosslinking of Methacrylated Collagen Hydrogels: Effect of I2959 vs. VA086 on Mechanics and Cellular Response
Irgacure 2959 (I2959) is widely used for photochemical crosslinking of a variety of different hydrogels. However, the free radicals generated from I2959 have been reported to be highly cytotoxic. Previous work has shown ...
Analysis and Classification of 3-D Printed Collagen-Bioglass Matrices for Cellular Growth Utilizing Artificial Neural Networks
Introduction: Recent advances have shown the influence of biomimetic design on modulation of the extracellular matrix (ECM) and the role stiffness of it plays in cellular behavior. 2-D models for cellular growth poorly ...
