Abstract

Session: Biomaterials Fabrication and Synthesis: abstract no. 47INTRODUCTION: Ti-6Al-4V is widely used in present orthopedic applications, owing to a combination of good mechanical properties and excellent corrosion resistance. However, long-term success of Ti-6Al-4V implants and the completeness of their osteointegration still need to be addressed [1]. Since the biofunctionality of the implant is strongly affected by its surface characteristics, to promote osteointegration, considerable efforts have focused on modifying the surface of the implants. Alternatively, surface modification using plasma immersion ion implantation (PIII) has been developed in order to incorporate new biofunctional groups onto titanium alloy surfaces [2]. The present study aims at investigating the impact of carbon-nitrogen (Car-Nit) dual plasma surface treatment on …postprintThe 2010 North America Conference of the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society (TERMIS-NA 2010), Orlando, FL., 5-8 December 2010
