Hundreds of thousands of implants have been implanted yearly in various medical areas. However, there are still many cases of rejection of implants owing to infections, allergic or toxic reactions or material failure. Our publication deals with the development of novel coatings to minimize those risks. The inert ceramic materials could be tailored and multifunctionalized using a chemical modification deposition of CaP coatings via in situ nucleation. This process takes place at room temperature and no thermal post-treatment is required. This allows for new possibilities to introduce additional thermosensitive biological agents to design a multifunctional surface. The multifunctional character of the coatings could be used in the future to design a tailored implant surface based on the requirements of its use. View this paper
