BILATEX

Title:  NEW GENERATION OF BIOACTIVE LASER TEXTURED TI/HAP IMPLANTS

Acronym: BiLaTex

Project start-end date:

01/05/2023 – 30/04/2026

Total Project Costs:  765 000 (Euro)

Project Abstract

Visible effects of society’s ageing is the reported increase in the necessity of orthopaedic implants boosting  to  a  huge  economical  market.  For  a  successful  integration  of  any  implant,  bone regeneration,  osseointegration  at  the  interface  bone  and  implant  as  well  as  mitigating inflammatory events are crucial aspects. The project aims at extending the biocompatibility and tribo-mechanical performance associated with a lifetime of surgical implants based on Titanium (Ti). The hypothesis states combining Ti alloy with hydroxyapatite (HAp), and medically active components  (drug  delivery  function)  in  order  to  obtain  excellent  biomaterial  supporting  bone growth and eliminating the problem of loosening of the implant by its integration with bone. The project  goes  beyond  the  state-of-the-art  by  laser  surface  treatment,  opening  the  underlying porosity improving the cell transport and cell growth. The result implant biomaterial, will reduce the number of removal surgeries in the future.
