Electrolytic deposition of calcium etidronate drug coating on titanium substrate.

Abstract

Wear debris-induced osteolysis is the major cause of aseptic loosening and failure of hip implants. One of the promising therapeutic interventions to improve the longevity of hip implants is to administrate bisphosphonate drug to inhibit osteoclastic bone resorption. This study aimed at developing new techniques of directly combining bisphosphonate with… (More)
