Title (EN) ANTIMICROBIAL SURGICAL IMPLANTS
(FR) IMPLANTS CHIRURGICAUX ANTIMICROBIENS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Surgical implants, especially endoprosthetic orthopaedic implants and sutures, are rendered antimicrobial by the presence of a bioerodible metallic silver component, especially a surface coating, which provides in vivo a sustained release of silver ions in a concentration sufficient to provide a localized antimicrobial effect but insufficient to cause significant damage to connective tissue. Latently bioerodible silver components of an implant can be activated by, for example, abrasion, heating to above about 180 or, especially, contact with hydrogen peroxide.
(FR)Implants chirurgicaux, notamment implants et sutures orthopediques endoprotetiques, sont rendus antimicrobiens par la presence d'un composant d'argent metallique bioerodible, notamment un revetement de surface, permettant in vivo une liberation soutenue d'ions d'argent dans une concentration suffisante pour permettre un effet antimicrobien localise mais insuffisante a causer un dommage important aux tissus connectifs. Des composants d'argent bioerodible de maniere latente d'un implant peuvent etre actives, par exemple, par l'usure due au frottement, par l'echauffement a une temperature superieure a 180 C ou, notamment, par contact avec du peroxyde d'hydrogene.
