    • Binder jetting additive manufacturing of biodegradable Zn 

      Goncharov, Ivan; García Mintegui, Claudia; Pegueroles Neyra, Marta; Vedani, M. (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2022-06-16)
      Conference lecture
      Open Access
      Biodegradable materials avoid second surgeries and long-term associated risks of conventional inert implants. Zn arose as a potential candidate for bioresorbable implants due to its proper degradation behaviour and ...
    • Biodegradable metallic zinc alloys for biomedical applications 

      García Mintegui, Claudia; Goncharov, I.S.; Jiménez Piqué, Emilio; Vedani, M.; Cortina Pallás, José Luís; Pegueroles Neyra, Marta (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2022-06-16)
      Conference lecture
      Open Access
      Biodegradable metals, such as zinc (Zn) appear to overcome some of the drawbacks of permanent metallic implants. However, the uncontrolled biodegradation of Zn-alloyed materials is still a concern for biomedical applications ...
    • Bioresorbable Zn-based alloys for biomedical applications 

      García Mintegui, Claudia (2023-01-26)
      Doctoral thesis
      Open Access
      (English) Biodegradable metals emerged as promising materials for bioresorbable devices avoiding the potential side effects of permanent implants. Among them, zinc (Zn) arose dueto its suitable degradation rate for biomedical ...
    • Dual peptide functionalization of Zn alloys to enhance endothelialization for cardiovascular applications 

      García Mintegui, Claudia; Chausse Calbet, Victor; Labay, Cédric Pierre; Mas Moruno, Carlos; Ginebra Molins, Maria Pau; Cortina Pallás, José Luís; Pegueroles Neyra, Marta (Elsevier, 2024-02-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      Covenantee:   Institut de Bioenginyeria de Catalunya
      A new generation of fully bioresorbable metallic Zn-based alloys could be used for stenting applications; however, the initial surface degradation delays stent re-endothelialization. Thus, this work proposes a dual strategy ...
    • Influence of ECAP process on mechanical, corrosion and bacterial properties of Zn-2Ag alloy for wound closure devices 

      García Mintegui, Claudia; Goncharov, Ivan; Ortiz Membrado, Laia; Jiménez Piqué, Emilio; Ginebra Molins, Maria Pau; Vedani, Maurizio; Cortina Pallás, José Luís; Pegueroles Neyra, Marta (Elsevier, 2023-04-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      Covenantee:   Politecnico di Milano / Institut de Bioenginyeria de Catalunya
      Actual polymeric wound closure devices are not optimal for load-bearing applications due to the low mechanical properties and the risk of inflammation and bacterial infection mainly produced by multifilament and braided ...
    • Zn-Mg and Zn-Cu alloys for stenting applications: From nanoscale mechanical characterization to in vitro degradation and biocompatibility 

      García Mintegui, Claudia; Córdoba Román, Laura Catalina; Buxadera Palomero, Judit; Marquina, Andrea; Jiménez Piqué, Emilio; Ginebra Molins, Maria Pau; Cortina Pallás, José Luís; Pegueroles Neyra, Marta (2021-12)
      Article
      Open Access
      Covenantee:   Institut de Bioenginyeria de Catalunya
      In the recent decades, zinc (Zn) and its alloys have been drawing attention as promising candidates for bioresorbable cardiovascular stents due to its degradation rate more suitable than magnesium (Mg) and iron (Fe) alloys. ...
