Title (EN) A MEDICAL DEVICE HAVING A SURFACE COMPRISING ANTIMICROBIAL METAL
(FR) DISPOSITIF MÉDICAL PRÉSENTANT UNE SURFACE COMPRENANT UN MÉTAL ANTIMICROBIEN
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A medical device intended for contact with living tissue comprises a substrate having a surface, which surface comprises a layer comprising one or more compound(s)of at least one non-toxic post-transition metal, such as a gallium or bismuth compound.A layer comprising a compound of at least one non-toxic post-transition metal has been shown to inhibit biofilm formation on the surface of the medical device, which may reduce the risk for infection e.g. around a dental implant. A method of producing the medical device comprises: a) providing a substrate having a surface; and applying a compound of at least one non-toxic post-transition metal onto said surface to form a layer, e.g. using a thin film deposition technique.
(FR)L'invention concerne un dispositif médical destiné à entrer en contact avec un tissu vivant, comprenant un substrat présentant une surface, laquelle surface comprend une couche contenant un ou plusieurs composés d'au moins un métal post-transition non toxique, tel qu'un composé de gallium ou de bismuth. Il s'avère qu'une couche contenant au moins un métal post-transition non toxique inhibe la formation de biofilm sur la surface du dispositif médical, ce qui permet de réduire le risque d'infection par exemple autour d'un implant dentaire. Un procédé de production du dispositif médical comprend : a) la fourniture d'un substrat ayant une surface ; et l'application d'un composé d'au moins un métal post-transition non toxique sur ladite surface pour former une couche, par exemple à l'aide d'une technique de dépôt de film mince.
