  • A novel strategy to enhance interfacial adhesion in fiber-reinforced calcium phosphate cement 

    Gallinetti, Sara; Mestres, Gemma; Canal Barnils, Cristina; Persson, Cecilia; Ginebra Molins, Maria Pau (Elsevier, 2017-11-01)
    Article
    Open Access

    Calcium phosphate cements (CPCs) are extensively used as synthetic bone grafts, but their poor toughness limits their use to non-load-bearing applications. Reinforcement through introduction of fibers and yarns has been ...
  • 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 ...
  • Changes in the drug release pattern of fresh and set simvastatin-loaded brushite cement 

    Mestres Beà, Gemma; Kugiejko, Karol; Pastorino Carraz, David; Unosson, Johanna; Ohman, Caroline; Karlsson Ott, Marjam; Ginebra Molins, Maria Pau; Persson, Cecilia (2016-01-01)

    Calcium phosphate cements are synthetic bone graft substitutes able to set at physiological conditions. They can be applied by minimally invasive surgery and can also be used as drug delivery systems. Consequently, the ...
  • Compressive, diametral tensile and biaxial flexural strength of cutting-edge calcium phosphate cements 

    Luo, Jun; Ajaxon, Ingrid; Ginebra Molins, Maria Pau; Engqvist, Hakan; Persson, Cecilia (Elsevier, 2016-07-01)
    Article

    © 2016 The Authors. Calcium phosphate cements (CPCs) are widely used in bone repair. Currently there are two main types of CPCs, brushite and apatite. The aim of this project was to evaluate the mechanical properties of ...
  • Evaluation of a porosity measurement method for wet calcium phosphate cements 

    Ajaxon, Ingrid; Maazouz, Yassine; Ginebra Molins, Maria Pau; Ohman, Caroline; Persson, Cecilia (2015)
    Article
    Open Access
    Covenantee:  Uppsala universitet
    The porosity of a calcium phosphate cement is a key parameter as it affects several important properties of the cement. However, a successful, non-destructive porosity measurement method that does not include drying has ...
  • In vivo efficiency of antimicrobial inorganic bone grafts in osteomyelitis treatments 

    Mestres Beà, Gemma; Fernández Yague, Marc Antoni; Pastorino Carraz, David; Montufar Jiménez, Edgar Benjamin; Canal Barnils, Cristina; Manzanares Céspedes, Maria Cristina; Ginebra Molins, Maria Pau (Elsevier, 2019-04-01)

  • Porosity prediction of calcium phosphate cements based on chemical composition 

    Ohman, Caroline; Unusson, Johanna; Carlsson, Elin; Ginebra Molins, Maria Pau; Persson, Cecilia; Engqvist, Hakan (2015-07-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Covenantee:  Uppsala universitet
    The porosity of calcium phosphate cements has an impact on several important parameters, such as strength, resorbability and bioactivity. A model to predict the porosity for biomedical cements would hence be a useful tool. ...
  • Reactive combinatorial synthesis and characterization of a gradient Ag-Ti oxide thin film with antibacterial properties 

    Unosson, Erik; Rodríguez Rius, Daniel; Welch, Ken; Engqvist, Hakan (2015-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Covenantee:  Uppsala universitet
    The growing demand for orthopedic and dental implants has spurred researchers to develop multifunctional coatings, combining tissue integration with antibacterial features. A possible strategy to endow titanium (Ti) with ...
  • The effect of unsaturated fatty acid and triglyceride oil addition on the mechanical and antibacterial properties of acrylic bone cements 

    Persson, Cecilia; Robert, Elise; Carlsson, Elin; Robo, Celine; López-Gil Serra, Alejandro; Ginebra Molins, Maria Pau; Godoy Gallardo, María; Engqvist, Hakan (2015-09-01)
    Article
