Beschreibungen

This book summarizes the effective reinforcement of scaffolds by means of different kinds of fibers and tubes to meet different needs in the context of tissue repair. It covers the fabrication of the reinforced scaffolds, the factors influencing their properties, and their applications for hard and soft tissue repair. Further, it presents a range of concrete examples, case studies and research frontiers, providing readers a better understanding of how the respective fibers or tubes influence the mechanical properties, biodegradability, biocompatibility and bioactivity of scaffolds, and how they fulfill specific medical requirements. As such, the book provides a valuable and informative resource for researchers, technicians and students in the fields of biomaterials, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.
Chapter 1. Overview of scaffolds reinforcement for tissue repair

Chapter author: Dr. Xiaoming Li, et al., Beihang University, China

To describe the background, structure, logicality and main content of this book.

Part I: FABRICATION AND MATERIAL PROPERTIES

Chapter 2. The potential matrix and reinforcement materials for the preparation of the scaffolds reinforced by fibers or tubes for tissue repair

Chapter author: Dr. Xiaoming Li, et al., Beihang University, China

To discuss all the potential matrix and reinforcement materials, and the general design and preparation methods of the scaffolds reinforced by fibers or tubes for tissue repair.

 

Chapter 3. The mechanical properties of the scaffolds reinforced by fibers or tubes for tissue repair

Chapter author: Dr. Nicholas Dunne, et al., Queen's University of Belfast, UK

To elaborate the reinforcement mechanisms of the fibers or tubes in the scaffold, the efforts to get the homogeneous structure and composition throughout the reinforced scaffolds, the processing techniques to improve adhesive strength between the matrix and the fibers or tubes, etc.

 

Chapter 4. The biodegradability of the scaffolds reinforced by fibers or tubes for tissue repair

Chapter author: Dr. Katerina E. Aifantis, et al., University of Arizona, USA

To expatiate how the fiber/tube addition affects the degradation rate, structure and mechanical property change of the scaffolds during the degradation in vitro and in vivo, and how the interactions between the matrix and the fibers or tubes affect the biodegradability of the scaffolds.

 

Chapter 5. The biocompatibility of the scaffolds reinforced by fibers or tubes for tissue repair

Chapter author: Dr. Yanfeng Luo, et al, Chongqing University, China

To set forth how the fiber/tube addition affects the interactions between the scaffolds with biomacromolecules, cells and tissues in vitro and in vivo, and how the interactions between the matrix and the fibers or tubes affect these performances of the scaffolds.

 

Part II: TISSUE REPAIR APPLICATIONS

 

Chapter 6. The potential tissues and their properties

Chapter author: Dr. Xiangdong Kong, et al., Zhejiang

Sci-Tech University, China

To discuss all the potential tissues and their structures and properties, which could be repaired with the scaffolds reinforced by fibers or tubes.

 

Chapter 7. Scaffolds reinforced by fibers or tubes for hard tissue repair

Chapter author: Dr. Xiaoming Li, et al, Beihang University, China To state special design and fabrication of novel scaffolds reinforced by fibers or tubes for hard tissue repair, and how the fiber/tube addition affects the special functions in vitro and in vivo to repair hard tissues.

 

Chapter 8. Scaffolds reinforced by fibers or tubes for soft tissue repair

Chapter author: Dr. Bao-Qing Pei, et al, Beihang University, China

To state special design and fabrication of novel scaffolds reinforced by fibers or tubes for soft tissue repair, and how the fiber/tube addition affects the special functions in vitro and in vivo to repair soft tissues.

Dr. Xiaoming Li (1977) is a Professor at the School of Biological Science and Medical Engineering, Beihang University, Beijing, China.
