Here, the authors report on surface free energy modulation of a hydroxyapatite-coated titanium femoral implant that is performed by a newly-developed method using a low-energy electron irradiation. They observe pronounced increase of hydrophobicity of irradiated samples that occurs in several stages and is characterized by various mechanisms. Bacterial adhesion on electron modified hydroxyapatite samples is studied, by considering different approaches. The authors show that bacterial adherence… CONTINUE READING
