The fabrication and characterization of bioengineered ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene-collagen-hap hybrid bone-cartilage patch

Abstract:

A layered hybrid implant was designed and fabricated for the surgical replacement of worn cartilage to meet the complex requirements of biocompatibility and mechanics. The natural hierarchical structure was purposefully mimicked to improve the implant performance and integration. The hybrid was fabricated using three components: processed collagen gel, hydroxyapatite (HAp) powder and ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) in bulk and sponge form. The fabrication included hot moldin...
