Penetrative osseointegrative phospholipid coatings on 3D titanium lattice structures
Titanium is a commonly used material for implantable metallic devices though these devices still have many issues. The cost of implant surgery and the likely revision surgery that will follow is high. Cementless implants frequently fail due to aseptic loosening of the device, typically as a result of poor osseointegration. Phospholipids are naturally occurring substances that have been used to enhance new bone growth and integration of this bone with the implants. Electrospraying (e-spraying) is a method that uses electrical forces to drive source material to a target conductor. It typically has ...
