Surface modification of biomaterials for orthopaedic applications
This project will establish that our novel modified calcium silicate materials have enhanced bioactivity and osseointegration properties for coatings onto orthopaedic implants.
In Australia more than 60,000 patients require joint replacement operations annually, 25% of which are revisions, a rate that will increase by some 10% p.a, placing an increasing burden on the health budget. Revision operations are mainly due to aseptic loosening of the implant following erosion of supporting bone.
