Multilayered Osteochondral Implant for Enhanced Bone Healing
This novel off-the-shelf osteochondral implant exhibits a highly similar microarchitecture to that of native bone and cartilage, allowing better integration and mechanical support to the damaged tissue after implantation. Approximately 2,000,000 surgical procedures were performed to repair chondral defects in the United States between 2004-2011, with...

Smart Orthopedic Screws for Imaging through Tissue
These smart orthopedic screws allow physicians to noninvasively detect and monitor the health of bone implants, potentially preventing infection and implant loosening over time. In the United States, musculoskeletal injuries affect over 28 million patients annually – at least two million of which require fracture fixation surgery. These surgeries...

Durable Polymeric Antimicrobial Coating for Orthopedics
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 burden...

Biphasic Osteochondral Construct for Cartilage Tissue Repair
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 cartilage...

Method and Material to Extend the Life of Total Joint Replacements through Wear
More than 500,000 joint replacements occur in the US each year and demand for joint replacements will grow an estimated 175 percent for total hip replacements and six-fold for total knee replacements by 2030 (CDC report “Health United States 2009”). These replacements typically last about 10 years or more, but as the patients live longer...
