    Bioceramics are ceramic materials used to replace, repair or augment damaged or missing parts of the body. For example, hydroxyapatite (HA = Ca10(PO4)6(OH)2) and tricalcium phosphate (TCP = Ca3(PO4)2) are bioceramics ...
  • Du Preez, WB; Richter, PW; Hope, D; Kotze, CP (2006-07)
    Eyeborn is an innovative hydroxyapatite orbital implant used to replace the eyeball of a patient who has lost an eye. A prosthetic eye cap is fitted in front of the Eyeborn implant, restoring the patient’s appearance and ...
  • Ripamonti, U; Richter, PW; Nilen, RWN (Foundation for Cellular and Molecular Medicine/Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2008)
    Long-term studies in the non-human primate Chacma baboon Papio ursinus were set to investigate the induction of bone formation by biphasic hydroxyapatite/β-tricalcium phosphate (HA/β-TCP) biomimetic matrices. HA/β-TCP ...
  • Naidoo, Kersch; Rolfes, H; Easton, K; Moolman, FS; Chetty, A; Richter, PW; Nilen, R; Kotze, L (CSIR, 2008-11)
    CSIR researchers have developed an injectable, resorbable soft tissue bulking product that has potential applications in fields ranging from heart and recontructive surgery, to minimally invasive cosmetic surgery. Biomaterials ...
  • Richter, PW; Thomas, ME; Van Deventer, T (Bureau Scientific Publications, 1999-08)
    Solid freeform fabrication is a recent technology by which prototype devices can be manufactured layer by layer under computer control. This allows the production not only of individual devices of complex shape, but also ...
  • Thomas, ME; Richter, PW; Van Deventer, T; Crooks, J; Ripamonti, U (Bureau Scientific Publications, 1999-08)
    An improved strategy is described for the manufacture of macroporous hydroxyapatite bioceramics for bone substitute applications. This is based on a modified fugitive phase technique, which allows production of relatively ...
  • Schenker, R; De Beer, DJ; Du Preez, WB; Thomas, ME; Richter, PW (Bureau Scientific Publ, 1999-08)
    The technologies of reverse engineering and rapid prototyping are emerging as useful new tools in medicine. One application is of particular interest in orthopaedic, dental and reconstructive surgery. It involves the ...

    Polyurethane (PU) may be suitable for various implant applications; however, it lacks bioactivity. Bioactivity allows for direct tissue attachment at the bio- interface, enabling implant fixation while preventing fibrous ...
  • Nilen, RWN; Richter, PW (Springer Science and Business Media, 2008-04)
    Biphasic calcium phosphate ceramics (BCP) comprising a mix of non-resorbable hydroxyapatite (HA) and resorbable b-tricalcium phosphate (b-TCP) are particularly suitable materials for synthetic bone substitute applications. ...
