Short Description

A Novel Bioactive Ceramic Coating for Improved Fixation of Orthopedic Implants


An estimated 11 million people in the U. S. have at least one medical device implant.  Tissue regeneration between bone and an orthopedic implant is essential for sufficient fixation and longevity of the implant.  This novel ceramic implant coating demonstrates superior mechanical properties, bioactivity, and resorbability compared to traditional calcium phosphate ceramics or bioactive glass.   

Patent Pending: PCT/US2010/038959; U.S. 13/378,829
