Topic title: 3D-printed Bioactive Composite Hydrogel Scaffold for Vascularized Adipose Tissue Restoration


The increased number of mastectomies, combined with rising patient expectations for cosmetic and psychosocial outcomes, has necessitated the use of adipose tissue restoration techniques. In our study, bioactive composition for stimulating adipogenic differentiation of stem cells and angiogenesis was determined, and a bioactive composite hydrogel scaffold was prepared by three-dimensional (3D) printing technology, applying gelatin methacrylate anhydride (GelMA) as printing ink and calcium silicate (CS) bioceramic as an active ingredient for breast adipose tissue regeneration. The composite scaffold was found to promote vascularized adipose tissue restoration in vivo. These findings suggest that this 3D-printed bioactive composite scaffolds might be a good candidate for vascularized adipose tissue engineering and breast reconstruction.
