  1. 1. Injectable calcium sulphate and calcium phosphate bone substitutes

    University dissertation from Department of Orthopaedics, Lund University

    Author : Malin K Nilsson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; traumatologi; ortopedi; Kirurgi; Surgery; orthopaedics; traumatology; resorbable; hydroxyapatite; bone substitute; calcium phosphate; injectable; calcium sulphate;

    Abstract : Two formulations of biphasic injectable bone substitutes have been developed for the treatment of bone defects and stabilisation of fragility fractures. The first formulation consists of a calcium sulphate matrix with embedded hydroxyapatite (HA) particles to provide osteoconductivity. READ MORE

  2. 2. Porous Amorphous Calcium Carbonate and Phosphate Synthesis and Application

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Rui Sun; Uppsala universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; amorphous calcium carbonate; amorphous calcium phosphate; stabilization; crystallization; porous material; drug delivery; gas adsorption; Engineering Science with specialization in Nanotechnology and Functional Materials; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot nanoteknologi och funktionella material;

    Abstract : The synthesis of porous amorphous calcium carbonate (ACC) and porous amorphous calcium phosphate (ACP) was developed in this thesis. Porous ACC with specific Brunauer–Emmett–Teller (BET) surface area of >350 m2/g was synthesized using a surfactant free approach. The high surface area of porous ACC was related to its nanostructure. READ MORE

  3. 3. Submicron Calcium Phosphate Spheres for Biomedical Applications Synthesis and Use

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Tao Qin; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; calcium phosphate; spheres; dentinal hypersensitivity; drug release; tooth bleaching;

    Abstract : Calcium phosphate spheres as biomaterials have been attracting attention in recent years. Calcium phosphate occurs naturally in bone, and a hollow structure could be advantageous for drug loading and release. READ MORE

  4. 4. Biomimetic Formation of Calcium Phosphate Based Nanomaterials

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Wenxiao He; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; superstructure; lyotropic liquid crystal; self-assembly; Calcium phosphate; bone-like apatite; amphiphilic peptide; nanocomposite; biomimetic mineralization;

    Abstract : The intercellular material in bone is a nanocomposite of aligned “hard” inorganics—calcium phosphate (CaP) platelets embedded in the long-range ordered “soft” organic collagen matrix. This elaborate structural arrangement redeems the weaknesses of the individual components (being soft protein or brittle mineral) and gives bone its excellent mechanical properties for the protection and support of our bodies.

  5. 5. Can Bone Void Fillers Carry Load? Behaviour of Calcium Phosphate Cements Under Different Loading Scenarios

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Ingrid Ajaxon; Uppsala universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Calcium phosphate; bone cement; brushite; apatite; monetite; porosity; solvent exchange; degradation; compressive strength; diametral tensile strength; flexural strength; elastic modulus; Poisson’s ratio; fatigue; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot materialvetenskap; Engineering Science with specialization in Materials Science;

    Abstract : Calcium phosphate cements (CPCs) are used as bone void fillers and as complements to hardware in fracture fixation. The aim of this thesis was to investigate the possibilities and limitations of the CPCs’ mechanical properties, and find out if these ceramic bone cements can carry application-specific loads, alone or as part of a construct.
