  • 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 ...
  • 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)

    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 ...
  • 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)
