Durable Polymeric Antimicrobial Coating for Orthopedics (2017-059)
External fixation is a well-established orthopedic practice in which fractured bones or fusion sites are immobilized for healing by placing wires and/or pins into the bone on either side. Unfortunately, both superficial and deep tissue infections are prevalent with the use of external fixators, particularly Staphylococcal infections. The economic b...

Biphasic Osteochondral Construct for Cartilage Tissue Repair (09-026)
This osteochondral construct is seeded with mesenchymal stem cells to encourage repair of cartilage and subchondral bone in synovial joints. The global market for tissue engineering and regeneration is expected to grow from $13.6 billion in 2016 to $60.8 billion in 2021, in part due to the 5.4 million patients projected to require joint and cartila...

Bioadhesive Hydrogel for Surgical Repair of High Risk Wounds (2013-056)
This surgical bioadhesive mitigates the complications associated with traditional suturing practices, potentially decreasing surgery and recovery times. By 2017, the market for high strength medical adhesive is projected to reach $800 million. Clinical need for bioadhesives has risen due to the movement to laparoscopic and minimally invasive surger...

Locking Total Knee Replacement Design for Treating Knee Extensor Weakness (2012-084)
This design allows patients to selectively lock the knee in full extension for the purposes of ambulation and unlock free rotation when desired. According to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, over 600,000 total knee replacement surgeries are performed in the United States each year. While total knee replacement (TKR) is a definitive meth...

Albumin Biomaterials for Use in Implants and Related Devices (08-067)
With ever-advancing implantation technologies, there arises a growing need for materials that are biocompatible and able to reduce the risk of biomaterial-centered infections (BCI). Such infections are a key limitation in the performance of various implants, and play a crucial role in the treatment of the ear condition known as otitis media with pr...

Treatment to Render Implants Resistant to Diabetes
Diabetes plays a role in the functionality of biomaterials in the body. Hyperglycemia, the condition arising from high blood sugar levels, causes occlusion and restenosis of vascular grafts and degeneration of heart valves. These conditions lead to heart disease, which made up 68% of all diabetes-related deaths in the U.S. in 2004[1]. A primary ...
