Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Devices are commonly implanted during orthopaedic surgical procedures for fracture fixation, spine stabilization, total joint replacement and in numerous other subspecialties. Traditionally these implants have been made of non-biodegradable metals, polymer, and ceramics, and more recently, fully or partially biodegradable materials. These devices must interact with host tissues to obtain a final desired clinical goal with few or no adverse events. More recently, it has been realized that surface modifications and coatings of an orthopaedic device may improve the chances of achieving the desired outcome. Examples include coating of devices implanted into bone with bioceramics, growth factors and other molecules to accelerate fixation and implant osseointegration, coatings that deliver molecules to prevent or combat infection and composite tissue coated implants.

This special issue on "Biologic Coatings for Orthopaedic Implants" for the International Journal of Molecular Sciences will focus on such novel coatings for orthopaedic implants, including basic and applied science and their potential clinical application. This information will help further the scientific principles underlying coating technology and their applications in the hope that patient care will be enhanced.

Submission

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs).
