Introduction: Aseptic loosening of an orthopaedic implant due to the unsatisfactory attachment to the bone remains one of the most common reasons for failure of these implants. One of the possible approaches for improving the connection between the implanted biomaterial and the bone tissue being formed is the incorporation of bioactive agents...

Background. The past four decades, the problem of resistant bacteria has emerged. As a result of biofilm formation of (resistant) bacteria on the implant, more implant-associated infections (IAI) occurred. This has caused an increase in orthopaedic implant revisions, causing a high burden of disease. To overcome the rising problem of resistance,...

BACKGROUND.Implant-associated infection (IAI) is a rising complication in bone-related medical treatments using metal implants. Preventive measures, such as implant surfaces with integrated antibacterial properties, are hence required. The emergence of antibiotic-resistant pathogens has led to a growing interest in inorganic nanoparticles as...

In the current day and age, osteogenic bone implants are important to reduce healing time and infections after bone implantation. To help induce bone formation, the implant surface can be biofunctionalized with different agents. A promising surface modification technique used to treat titanium implants is Plasma Electrolytic Oxidation (PEO). In...
