The fatigue performance of additively manufactured auxetic meta-biomaterials made from commercially pure titanium has been studied only recently. While certain assumptions have been made regarding the mechanisms underlying their fatigue failure, the exact mechanisms are not researched yet. Here, we studied the mechanisms of crack formation...

Many manufacturing industries have been impacted by the innovation of additive manufacturing (AM), and biomaterials manufacturing is no exception. One group of biomaterials impacted by the innovation of 3D printing are degradable biomaterials. Degradable biomaterials could eliminate the need for surgery to remove the implant. 3D printed porous...

Interwoven refers to material structures made by growing plant roots into man-made patterns. Originally developed as an art piece to demonstrate root intelligence and bring attention to human-nature relations, Interwoven shows the potential to disrupt various commercial industries, especially as textile-based natural fiber reinforcements for...

Without our musculoskeletal system, which consists of bones, joints, and muscles, we would not be able to live. Our bones are responsible for the protection of our organs, the support of our body, and they enable our mobility. Therefore, it is important to keep them healthy. This is done by cells who repair small cracks and fractures caused by...

A bio-based future where biomaterials are part of everyday life is the vision and entry point of this thesis. Achieving this scenario requires changes in socio-technical systems by cutting non-renewable materials and redefining cultural and behavioural dynamics in the production-consumption value chain. With a focus on user experience, this...

Meta-biomaterials offer a promising route towards the development of life-lasting implants. The concept aims to achieve solutions that are ordinarily impossible, by offering a unique combination of mechanical, mass transport, and biological properties through the optimization of their small-scale geometrical and topological designs. In this...

Patients receiving orthopedic implants are at risk of implant-associated infections (IAI). A growing number of antibiotic-resistant bacteria threaten to hamper the treatment of IAI. The focus has, therefore, shifted towards the development of implants with intrinsic antibacterial activity to prevent the occurrence of infection. The use of Ag, Cu...

Stress shielding and micromotions are the most significant problems occurring at the bone-implants interface due to a mismatch of their mechanical properties. Mechanical 3D metamate-rials, with their exceptional behaviour and characteristics, can provide an opportunity to solve the mismatch of mechanical properties between the bone and...

The unprecedented properties of meta-biomaterials could pave the way for the development of life-lasting orthopedic implants. Here, we used non-auxetic meta-biomaterials to address the shortcomings of the current treatment options in acetabular revision surgery. Due to the severe bone deficiencies and poor bone quality, it can be very...

The surface topography of implantable devices is of crucial importance for guiding the cascade of events that starts from the initial contact of the cells with the surface and continues until the complete integration of the device in its immediate environment. There is, however, limited quantitative information available regarding the...

Osteoarthritis, the degeneration of articular cartilage, which causes loss of mobility and chronic pain for patients is a common condition with high clinical demand. Care of this condition currently attributes to ±1.4% of the Dutch annual health care costs, but due to the rapidly aging Dutch population a 41% increase of cases is projected over...

Almost every tissue in the human body is curved in a certain way. Examples are the extracellular matrix of different tissues such as trabecular bone, different acini and blood vessels. As such, the ability to create complex curved structures is crucial in the development of biomimetic biomaterials that could be used, for example, for tissue...

Context. In times where human kind is facing serious challenges due to global warming, scarcity of natural resources and inequality, to continue producing food, especially meat, as it is now done, does not seem sustainable. For people that want to continue enjoying their delicious piece of steak, the manner in which meat is sourced will need to...

Additively manufactured (AM) porous metallic biomaterials, in general, and AM porous titanium, in particular, have recently emerged as promising candidates for bone substitution. The porous design of such materials allows for mimicking the elastic mechanical properties of native bone tissue and showed to be effective in improving bone...

Cell migration has a central role in osteochondral defect repair initiation and biomaterial-mediated regeneration. New advancements to reestablish tissue function include biomaterials and factors promoting cell recruitment, differentiation and tissue integration, but little is known about responses to mechanical stimuli. In the present pilot...

The growing interest in multi-functional metallic biomaterials for bone substitutes challenges the current additive manufacturing (AM, =3D printing) technologies. It is foreseeable that advances in multi-material AM for metallic biomaterials will not only allow for complex geometrical designs, but also improve their multi-functionalities by...

Deployable meta-implants aim to minimize the invasiveness of orthopaedic surgeries by allowing for changes in their shape and size that are triggered by an external stimulus. Multi-stability enables deployable implants to transform their shape from some compact retracted state to the deployed state where they take their full sizes and are...

Antibiotic-resistant bacteria are frequently involved in implant-associated infections (IAIs), making the treatment of these infections even more challenging. Therefore, multifunctional implant surfaces that simultaneously possess antibacterial activity and induce osseointegration are highly desired in order to prevent IAIs. The incorporation...
