Nanotube-based three-dimensional albumin composite obtained using continuous laser radiation
The possibility of developing three-dimensional nanostructures for damaged bone and tissue restoration, including treatment of human congenital malformation is considered. Four types of multiwalled and single-walled carbon nanotubes fabricated by chemical vapor deposition via disproportionation on Fe clusters and thermal cathode sputtering in an inert gas were studied. The nanomaterial’s topography was studied by atomic-force microscopy. The possibility of using 3D nanocomposites as a biosolder for laser biowelding of cartilaginous tissue was shown. The compatibility of biological tissues with a nanocomposite material in vivo introduced under the perichondrium of ear cartilage of a rabbit was validated.
