Infectious diseases following surgical implantation are recurrent and serious clinical problems leading to a high mortality rate.
H&M project propose to develop a specific titanium implant coating allowing to deliver antibiotics locally only in case of infection appearance. This smart solution should allow to limit infectious complication following orthopaedic surgical implantation and decrease antibiotics oral administration prior to the surgery.
