Oberflächenmodifikationen von Implantaten. Teil 2

Klinische Anwendung
  • Marcus Jäger


Sowohl die chemische Komposition eines Werkstoffes als auch dessen Oberflächenstruktur und -topografie beeinflussen ganz wesentlich die Wirkungen von Implantaten im Körper. In der Orthopädie und Unfallchirurgie leisten sie hierdurch einen wichtigen Beitrag zur Lösung der aktuellen und zukünftigen Herausforderungen. Besonders hoch sind die Anforderungen für Implantate mit dauerhafter Anwendung am Knochen. Diese sind neben der Materialalterung durch oxidative Prozesse zusätzlich zyklischen Belastungen und damit einem biomechanischen Verschleiß ausgesetzt. Gegenwärtig werden insbesondere Strategien verfolgt, das Risiko implantatassoziierter immunogener Unverträglichkeiten zu minimieren sowie die Inzidenz periprothetischer Infekte weiter zu senken. Der vorliegende Beitrag gibt einen Überblick über die hierzu eingesetzten Oberflächenmodifikationen und deren Wirkprinzipien. Darüber hinaus werden aktuelle Entwicklungsstrategien für die gezielte klinische Anwendung von Implantatoberflächen skizziert.

Surface modifications of implants. Part 2

Clinical application


The chemical composition, surface structure and topography of a biomaterial have an essential influence on the effects of an implant in the human body. In orthopedic and trauma surgery they make a relevant contribution to solve the current and future challenges. Particularly high are the requirements of permanent implants in bone. Besides material aging due to oxidation, implants are subjected to cyclic loading that leads to relevant biomechanical wear and abrasion. To date significant efforts have been made to minimize adverse implant-associated immunoreactions as well as the risk of periprosthetic infections. This review gives an overview of surface modifications of implants designed for clinical application and their effects in vivo. Beside material-specific and biological principles, different surface modifications for distinct clinical applications are presented. Furthermore, current developmental strategies for the targeted clinical application of implant surfaces are outlined.
