  • Brushite foams - the effect of Tween® 80 and Pluronic® F-127 on foam porosity and mechanical properties 

    Unosson, Johanna; Montufar Jiménez, Edgar Benjamin; Engqvist, Hakan; Ginebra Molins, Maria Pau; Persson, Cecilia (2015-01-23)
    Article

    Resorbable calcium phosphate based bone void fillers should work as temporary templates for new bone formation. The incorporation of macropores with sizes of 100 -300 µm has been shown to increase the resorption rate of ...
  • Calcium phosphate cements as drug delivery materials 

    Ginebra Molins, Maria Pau; Canal Barnils, Cristina; Español Pons, Montserrat; Pastorino, David; Montufar Jiménez, Edgar Benjamin (2012-01-25)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Calcium phosphate cements are used as synthetic bone grafts, with several advantages, such as their osteoconductivity and injectability. Moreover, their low-temperature setting reaction and intrinsic porosity allow for the ...
  • Comparison of a low molecular weight and a macromolecular surfactant as foaming agents for injectable self setting hydroxyapatite foams: Polysorbate 80 versus gelatine 

    Montufar Jiménez, Edgar Benjamin; Traykova, Tania; Planell Estany, Josep Anton; Ginebra Molins, Maria Pau (2011-10-10)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Hydroxyapatite foams are potential synthetic bone grafting materials or scaffolds for bone tissue engineering. A novel method to obtain injectable hydroxyapatite foams consists in foaming the liquid phase of a calcium phosphate ...
  • In vivo performance of novel soybean/gelatin-based bioactive and injectable hydroxyapatite foams 

    Kovtun, Anna; goeckelmann, Melanie J.; Montufar Jiménez, Edgar Benjamin; Ginebra Molins, Maria Pau; Planell Estany, Josep Anton; Santin, Matteo; Ignatius, Anita (2015-01-15)
    Article
    Open Access
    Major limitations of calcium phosphate cements (CPCs) are their relatively slow degradation rate and the lack of macropores allowing the ingrowth of bone tissue. The development of self-setting cement foams has been proposed ...
  • New processing approaches in calcium phosphate cements and their applications in regenerative medicine 

    Ginebra Molins, Maria Pau; Español Pons, Montserrat; Montufar Jiménez, Edgar Benjamin; Pérez, R. A.; Mestres Beà, Gemma (2010-08)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The key feature of calcium phosphate cements (CPCs) lies in the setting reaction triggered by mixing one or more solid calcium phosphate salts with an aqueous solution. Upon mixture, the reaction takes place through a ...
  • Novel soybean/gelatine-based bioactive and injectable hydroxyapatite foam: material properties and cell response 

    Baldini, Nicola; Perut, Francesca; Montufar Jiménez, Edgar Benjamin; Ciapetti, Gabriela; Santin, Matteo; Salvage, J; Traykova, Tania; Planell Estany, Josep Anton; Ginebra Molins, Maria Pau (2010-12-10)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Despite their known osteoconductivity, clinical use of calcium phosphate cements is limited both by their relatively slow rate of resorption and by rheological properties incompatible with injectability. Bone in-growth and ...
  • Relevance of the setting reaction to the injectability of tricalcium phosphate pastes 

    Ginebra Molins, Maria Pau; Montufar Jiménez, Edgar Benjamin; Maazouz, Yassine (2013-04-09)
    Article
    Open Access
    The ai m of the present work was to analyze the influence of the setting reaction on the injectability of tricalcium phosphate (TCP) pastes. Even if the injection was performed early after mixing powder and liquid, ...
  • Robocasting of biomimetic hydroxyapatite scaffolds using self-setting inks 

    Maazouz, Yassine; Montufar Jiménez, Edgar Benjamin; Guillem Martí, Jordi; Fleps, I.; Ohman, C.; Persson, C.; Ginebra Molins, Maria Pau (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2014-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Low temperature self-setting ceramic inks have been scarcely investigated for solid freeform fabrication processes. This work deals with the robocasting of alpha-tricalcium phosphate/gelatine reactive slurries as a bioinspired ...
  • Self-hardening calcium deficient hydroxyapatite-gelatine foams for bone regeneration 

    Montufar Jiménez, Edgar Benjamin; Traykova, Tania; Schacht, Etienne; Ambrosio, Luigi; Santin, Matteo; Planell Estany, Josep Anton; Ginebra Molins, Maria Pau (2009-10-30)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this work gelatine was used as multifunctional additive to obtain injectable self-setting hydroxyapatite/ gelatine composite foams for bone regeneration. The foaming and colloidal stabilization properties of gelatine ...
