Abstract: Orthopaedic implants enable the restitution of locomotor function and improve the quality of life of many people. However, biomaterial-associated infection may occur due to the propensity of microorganisms to adhere and colonize implant surfaces. The objective was to gain knowledge on the pathogenesis of infections associated with percutaneous osseointegrated implants for lower limb amputation prostheses. The aims were to design in vitro methods for the evaluation of antimicrobial surface proper... more
