Ceramic and Glass Materials for Implants, Medical Devices and Tissue Engineering


July 28-31, 2016, Rosemont Hyatt, Chicago, IL

•         Orthopedic application
•         Dental and maxillofacial applications
•         Material needs medical devices
•         Advanced manufacturing technologies
•         Power Sources, energy harvesting, power transmission and telemetry
•         Implantable and wearable sensors


Track 1: Orthopedic application – Where are we? Where do we need to go?

Bioceramics are currently applied in high volume orthopedic applications such as bearing couples for total joint replacement, because of their high wear and scratch resistance coupled with high biocompatibility. The ceramic articulations have also shown to be a safe and proven technology. However, there is substantial room for improvement to reach their full potential and being introduced in other fields of orthopedics. Nevertheless, the design and engineering of these materials are already in progress with a focus on obtaining optimized properties which better respond to external, biologically compatible stimuli (physical, chemical, biological). Reaching this goal depends heavily on interdisciplinary contributions from material science, chemistry, physics, biology and medicine, which depend on mutually beneficial scientific exchange. The session is aimed to address the key challenges using a comprehensive approach that will embrace both bioinert and bioactive ceramics and will focus on the effect of biodegradation, engineering of material surfaces to promote osteointegration and osteosynthesis as well as mitigating bacteria biofilm formation. 

The topics of the session are:

·        New materials and bioinspired structures 
Surface modification for better cell-material interaction 
Bacteria anti-adhesion strategies 
Novel ceramic applications in orthopedics 
Clinical outcomes of bioceramics 
Mechanical properties of advanced bioceramics

Track Chair: Alessandro Alan Porporati, CeramTec GmbH, Plochingen, Germany
