Installing multifunctionality on titanium with RGD-decorated polyurethane-polyurea roxithromycin loaded nanoparticles: toward new osseointegrative therapies
(Advanced Healthcare Materials, 2015)
A novel class of polyurethane-polyurea nanoparticles (PUUa NPs) to install multifunctionality on biomaterials is presented. Biofunctionalization of titanium with roxithromycin loaded RGD-decorated PUUa ...
Determination of fluid leakages in the different screw-retained implant-abutment connections in a mechanical artificial mouth
(Journal of Materials Science: Materials in Medicine, 2015-07-15)
This study shows the potential risk of microfiltration between two different types of implant-abutment connections screwed at 45 Ncm: external and internal. For the first time the use of a mechanical ...
Mechanical and physicochemical characterization along with biological interactions of a new Ti25Nb21Hf alloy for bone tissue engineering
(Journal of Biomaterials Applications, 2015-03-23)
Nowadays, one of the main challenges in metal implants for bone substitution is the achievement of an elastic modulus close to that of human cortical bone as well as to provide an adequate interaction ...
