Electron microscopy was used to study silver nanoparticles directly deposited on hydroxyapatite coatings by plasma sputtering in vacuum. The bactericidal activity of nanosilver on bone implants with respect to the Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus, and Escherichia coli pathogens was examined. The application of silver nanoparticles to hydroxyapatite coatings by plasma sputtering in vacuum was found to have antibacterial effect on all studied test cultures of microorganisms.
