Title:
An extended spectrum bactericidal titanium dioxide (TiO2) coating for metallic implants: in vitro effectiveness against MRSA and mechanical properties. 
Abstract:
Implant infections remain feared and severe complications after total joint arthroplasty. The incidence of multi-resistant pathogens, causing such infections, is rising continuously, and orthopaedic surgeons are confronted with an ever-changing resistance pattern. Anti-infectious surface coatings aim for a high local effective concentration and a low systemic toxicity at the same time. Antibacterial efficacy and biomechanical stability of a novel broad-spectrum anti-infectious coating is assesse...    »
