  • Spatiotemporal characterization of hydration process of asymmetric polymeric wound dressings for decubitus ulcers

    Spatiotemporal characterization of hydration process of asymmetric polymeric wound dressings for decubitus ulcers

    Spatiotemporal characterization of PVA membrane during hydration in terms of T2 relaxation times and corresponding proton density along the traces A (along the skin layer) and B (along the centre of spongy layer) in Figure 6. Data acquired with temporal resolution of 0.5 h between 0 and 8 h; last measurement performed at 24 h.

  • Electrospun biodegradable microfibers induce new collagen formation in a rat abdominal wall defect model: A possible treatment for pelvic floor repair?

    Electrospun biodegradable microfibers induce new collagen formation in a rat abdominal wall defect model: A possible treatment for pelvic floor repair?

    Representative cross section of 24 weeks samples without bFGF. Weigert's elastin stain - Magnification ×40 with scale bar indicating 100 µm. Blue-black fibers in the right of the picture are elastin fibers.

  • Laser surface modification of 316L stainless steel

    Laser surface modification of 316L stainless steel

    Top surface IPF maps of (a) Untreated, (b) 1 mm/s, (c) 5 mm/s.

  • Bone regeneration in a rabbit critical femoral defect by means of magnetic hydroxyapatite macroporous scaffolds

    Bone regeneration in a rabbit critical femoral defect by means of magnetic hydroxyapatite macroporous scaffolds

    Details of histological sections of MAG_HA (a, c) and HA (b, d) within scaffold pores, stained with Toluidine Blue, Acid Fuchsin, and Fast Green (a, b) or TRAP stained (c, d) at 4 weeks from implantation. (*) and (#) marks indicate novel mature lamellar and woven bone tissue, respectively. High power view of TRAP positive osteoclasts actively committed in bone resorption localized at the edges of MAG_HA (c) and HA (d) scaffold are visible. Scale bar is 50 μm in (a) and (b) and 10 μm in (c) and (d).

  • Influence of hypoxia on the stemness of umbilical cord matrix-derived mesenchymal stem cells cultured on chitosan films

    Influence of hypoxia on the stemness of umbilical cord matrix‐derived mesenchymal stem cells cultured on chitosan films

    Differentiation potential of UCM-MSCs after culturing on chitosan film (19C, 5C) or standard plate (19S, 5S) under normoxia (19S, 19C) or hypoxia (5S, 5C) for 3 or 7 days. Cells were subjected to osteogenic (a–h), chondrogenic (i–p), and neurogenic (q–s) differentiation. Scale bar = 1000 µm for osteogenic (a–h), 200 µm for chondrogenic (i–p), and 400 µm for neurogenic (q–s) differentiation.

  • Effect of different sustained bone morphogenetic protein-2 release kinetics on bone formation in poly(propylene fumarate) scaffolds

    Effect of different sustained bone morphogenetic protein‐2 release kinetics on bone formation in poly(propylene fumarate) scaffolds

    Gömöri trichrome stained (A–L) and unstained (M–P) histological sections of C-50, C-65, C-75 and C-85 after 14 weeks of subcutaneous implantation. An interconnected porous network was seen with both osteoid (red) and bone growth (green) on the surface of the PPF scaffold (#). Osteoblasts were seen on the scaffold surface producing osteoid. Whereas pores created by salt leaching were cubical shaped, small circle-shaped lacunae (arrows) were created by microsphere. Fluorochrome analysis (M–P) showed calcein green (green) deposition in the newly formed bone on both scaffold surface and in the pores with woven appearance. Scale bars represent 1000 µm (A–D), 500 µm (E–H), 200 μm (J), 100 µm (I, K, L), 50 µm (M and P), and 20 µm (N and O).
