- ... Bacterial contamination is a critical problem in medical implants, which are preferential sites for bacterial adhesion, leading to infections which can compromise health and immune system of patients. Commercial titanium alloys are the most commonly used materials for permanent implants in contact with bone, and the prevention of infections on their surface is therefore a crucial challenge for ort ...

- ... Tissue adhesion is one of the most common complications after surgery (especially after abdominal surgery), causing notable influences after the damaged tissue has healed. A physical barrier placed between the wound site and the adjacent tissues is a convenient and highly effective technique to minimize or prevent abdominal adhesions. In this work, the N, O-carboxymethyl chitosan/oxidized regenera ...
