2nd European Tissue engineering
In reconstructive surgery of maxillofacial defects the application of tissue engineering cell carrier matrices of bone grafts is needed. There is still a variety of indications for special supporting stability materials e.g. for calvarium reconstruction, sinus floor elevation and tumor surgery. The materials differ in pore size, composition, permeability, durability and pore density. Industrial and individual methods exist of producing such materials. The individual technique of rapid prototyping allows a three dimensional growing of cells.
Material and Methods
Scaffolds produced by rapid prototyping (PLGA, Resomer RG 503® Boehringer Ingelheim, Germany (Fig 1)) and one industrial produced material (Tissue FoliE, Baxter, native equine collagen) were compared. Both materials were seeded with 1 x 105 cells/ml osteoblasts. The cells were cultivated of corticolamellar bone of the maxilla from ten different patients and twelve sheep. After one week incubation (37°C / 5% CO2 atmosphere) cell proliferation test (EZ4U, Biomedica Vienna) was performed. Furthermore cell growing was investigated by using scanning electron microscope.

|Fig.2: Scanning electron microscopy study of industrial and individual materials. On the left side (Fig A,C) are the collagen matrices and on the right side (Fig B,D) are the PLGA scaffolds produced by rapid prototyping. Only human osteoblasts are shown. They were cultivated and seeded with 1x105 osteoblasts/ml on each
|Fig 3: Cell proliferation analysis of human (n=10) and sheep (n=12) osteoblasts seeded on individual PLGA and industrial collagen material. Little difference in cell proliferation between the materials for sheep osteoblasts exist. The difference between human and sheep osteoblasts on PLGA was obvious. The optimal growing conditions were on the industrial material with human osteoblasts.
Comparing these experiments human osteoblasts showed a higher cell proliferation than sheep osteoblasts on each material. Furthermore the growing of sheep osteoblasts was better on PLGA 3 D plotted structure. There was a significant higher cell proliferation of human osteoblasts on the collagen matrix than on PLGA.
This study showed that both materials are equal with regard to cell proliferation and cell cytotoxic effects. The industrial and the individual structures are suitable for clinical application. The advantage of rapid prototyping is the possibility of producing individual scaffolds which allows three dimensional growing condition.
