Electrochemical polymerization and electrophoretic deposition have gained growing interest among strategies aimed at coating titanium implants with polymers. Distinction should be made between the preparation of bioinert and bioactive coatings. However, these two strategies are often pursued and achieved simultaneously. Indeed, the ideal coating is a system in which anti-corrosion, osseointegration, infections prevention and inflammation control can be obtained at the same time. The ultimate goal of all these coatings is the management of processes occurring at titanium interface, with a special emphasis on cell-coating interactions. This review discusses advantages and drawbacks of electrochemical strategies to coat titanium implants. View this paper.
