Summary of "Injectable polymer/nanomaterial composites for the fabrication of three-dimensional biomaterial scaffolds."

Current tissue engineering techniques have been intensively focused on creating injectable systems that can be used in minimally invasive surgery and controlled local drug delivery applications. The materials developed so far are based on natural and synthetic polymers and their nanocomposites, but many of them fail to simultaneously provide mechanical stability, stretchability and enhanced cell adhesiveness. In this context, to generate advanced injectable nanocomposite polymers that concurrently possess several properties, we used nanomaterials as well as nanomaterials that are chemically functionalized with bioactive molecules. Our 3D-printed polymer/nanomaterial composites (nanocomposite polymers) displayed enhanced mechanical properties, good shape fidelity, non-toxicity, stretchability, biostability and cell adhesiveness.

Strongly cationic polymer that binds to certain proteins; used as a marker in immunology, to precipitate and purify enzymes and lipids. Synonyms: aziridine polymer; Epamine; Epomine; ethylenimine polymer; Montrek; PEI; Polymin(e).

Echocardiography amplified by the addition of depth to the conventional two-dimensional ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY visualizing only the length and width of the heart. Three-dimensional ultrasound imaging was first described in 1961 but its application to echocardiography did not take place until 1974. (Mayo Clin Proc 1993;68:221-40)

The process of generating three-dimensional images by electronic, photographic, or other methods. For example, three-dimensional images can be generated by assembling multiple tomographic images with the aid of a computer, while photographic 3-D images (HOLOGRAPHY) can be made by exposing film to the interference pattern created when two laser light sources shine on an object.

Three-dimensional computed tomographic imaging with the added dimension of time, to follow motion during imaging.

Methods of comparing two or more samples on the same two-dimensional gel electrophoresis gel.
