Abstract in another language

A polyester polycaprolactone-based polyurethane elastomer (PU) and poly-(L-lactide) (PLLA), two common biomaterials, were electrospun to produce membranes with fibres either randomly orientated or aligned. PU was used to produce membranes consisting of smooth fibres. PLLA was used to prepare fibres with a textured surface. Contact angle measurements of the PU and PLLA cast films reveal that they were both below 90 degrees and fully wetted in less than 60 s. These membranes were investigated for the effect of fibre topography and fibre alignment on cell adhesion, using mouse L929 fibroblasts. It was found that the alignment of electrospun fibres controls the directional spreading of fibroblast independent of fibre being smooth or textured.
