Carbon Fibers in Biomedical Applications

Carbon fiber (CF) consists of a multitude of unique physical, chemical and biological characteristics that can be utilized and exploited for a number of diverse applications. Being light weight, high strength, and chemically stable, so they are applied in various fields including aeronautical science and space science. Investigation of applications of carbon fibers to biomaterials was started 30 or more years ago, and various products have been developed. It is used widely in imaging equipment structures to support limbs being X-rayed or treated with radiation.

Carbon fiber implants aid fixation of extremity fractures in oncology cases

Carbon fiber-reinforced polyether­therketone or CFR-PEEK implants have been used in orthopedic surgery, and spine surgery in particular, for almost 2 decades. However, the increased use of these carbon-reinforced implants has recently occurred in orthopedic traumatology, sports medicine and oncology. Carbon-reinforced implants are made of composite materials that consist of carbon fiber sheets inlayed within a …

The what, when, and why of mesenchymal stromal cells

A billion-dollar industry has emerged around mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) fueled by their intriguing and broad-range therapeutic properties. But when and how were MSCs and their potential uses discovered? Join me in a series of posts where we follow the history of MSCs. We’ll discuss their recognition and claimed uses as therapeutic tools – both …

The Future of Regen Med Depends on a Change in Thinking

“Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent.” -Issac Asimov, Foundation As a nerdy teenager reading science fiction books and engaged in science, Issac Asimov was kind of a hero to me in the same way that sports figures were to most kids. His quote above is important to understand how medicine needs to evolve …

(Featured in NATURE ) Three Biotech Solutions for Knee Repair

If you look very carefully at the C-curved squiggle taking shape on a 3-D printer at Columbia University Medical Center, you just might spot the future of knee repair. Layer by layer, the machine’s tiny needle squirts out a bead of white polymer, matching a virtual blueprint of a meniscus—the semicircular band of tough, fibrous cartilage that serves as the knee’s shock absorber. A bioprinter in the laboratory of Jeremy Mao can churn out three menisci in just under 16 minutes.

Using Telehealth to Expand Access to Essential Health Services during the COVID-19 Pandemic

Changes in the way that health care is delivered during this pandemic are needed to reduce staff exposure to ill persons, preserve personal protective equipment (PPE), and minimize the impact of patient surges on facilities. Healthcare systems have had to adjust the way they triage, evaluate, and care for patients using methods that do not rely on in-person services.

Stem Cell Dosing in Regenerative Medicine

Stem Cell Dosing 101 While our new paper concerns the same-day stem cell treatment known as bone marrow concentrate, let’s go over stem cell dosing in general for all types of treatments: No Dose? The first thing to know is that more than 99% of treatments called stem cells being delivered to patients today have …

The future with antibiotic resistance, Spider silk, Bioprinting advances, bioscaffolds, new Cell harvesting techniques

Biomedical engineering is a huge topic
nowadays – especially with COVID-19
circulating the globe. Biomedical engineering
(often known as ‘medical engineering’) is the term
used for the combination of biology and engineering
or applying engineering materials to medicine and
healthcare. BME (biomedical engineering) is very
important for the healthcare industry – from
advancing medical treatments to monitoring a
condition – without it the healthcare industry would
be very unreliable.

Prospective Clinical Study on Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy Combined With Platelet-Rich Plasma Injection for Knee Osteoarthritis

Objective: To investigate the effectiveness of extracorporeal shock wave therapy combined with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection in treatment of knee osteoarthritis (KOA) by prospective clinical study. Methods: Between June 2015 and June 2018, 180 patients with KOA met the inclusion criteria were included in study and randomly allocated to group A (n=60), group B (n=60), and group …
