Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Implantable materials are becoming more and more important as an alternative to repair, assist or replace defective parts of the body, such as dental, orthopedic, and cardiac implants. The properties of the materials have to match the mechanical stress applied to the implant. Implanted materials will be in direct contact with viable tissues in the body, which can cause an adverse reaction. Ideal implant material should be biocompatible, nontoxic, noncarniogenic, nonpyrogenic and nonallergenic. Further, the implants should have strength, durability, and show resistance to fatigue or corrosion. Modern technologies have enabled various surface modifications, including coating with ceramics, an extracellular matrix, growth factors to improve their biocompatibility, antibacterial property, or to promote differentiation of stem cells.
This Special Issue of Coatings will cover original research articles and review papers. The topics of interest include but are not limited to the development and application of surface coating for dental, orthopedic, and cardiac implants. This Special Issue will provide understanding of the current trends in those fields.
We look forward to receiving your contribution.Prof. Toshiyuki Kawai
