Abstract
(EN)
The present invention is apparatus, systems, and methods for the treatment of bone, cartilage and other types of hard tissue. The treatments, which are suitable for extended treatment, include the treatment and prevention of pathologies through the controllable use of silver, iron, zinc, or magnesium ions. These pathologies may include a pathology which is at least partially induced or aggravated by an infectious disease, for example a bacterial disease. In this case the electrically released ions are silver ions, which are known to have antibacterial properties.

Cette invention concerne un appareil, des systèmes, et des méthodes pour traiter l'os, le cartilage et autres types de tissus durs. Les traitements, qui peuvent être utilisés pour un traitement prolongé, comprennent le traitement et la prévention de pathologies par l'utilisation contrôlée d'ions argent, fer, zinc, ou magnésium. Ces pathologies peuvent comprendre une pathologie qui est au moins partiellement induite ou aggravée par une maladie infectieuse, par exemple, une maladie bactérienne. Dans ce cas, les ions libérés électriquement sont des ions argent, qui sont connus pour posséder des propriétés antibactériennes.
