论文简介
An ideal intraosseous transcutaneous implant should form a tight seal with soft tissue, besides a requirement of osseointegration at the bone-fixed position. Si substituted hydroxyapatite (Si-HA) nanorods releasing Si ion and simulating nanotopography of natural tissue were designed on Ti to enhance fibroblast response in vitro and biosealing with soft tissue in vivo. Si-HA nanorods were fabricated by alkali-heat treatment followed with hydrothermal treatment. The hydrothermal formation mechanism of Si-HA nanorods was explored. The surface characteristic of Si-HA nanorods was compared with pure HA nanorods. Fibroblast behaviors in vitro and skin response in vivo on different surfaces were also evaluated. The obtained results show that the substitution of Si did not significantly alter the phase component, morphology, roughness and wettability of HA, but additional Si and more Ca were released from Si-HA into medium. Comparing to pure HA nanrods and Ti substrate, Si-HA nanrods enhanced cell behaviors including proliferation, fibrotic phenotype and collagen secretion in vitro, and reduced epithelial down growth in vivo. The enhanced cell response and biosealing should be due to the releasing of Ca, Si and nanotopography of Si-HA nanorods. Si-HA nanorods can be a potential coating to accelerate skin integration for percutaneous implants in clinic.
