After research that indicates which structures encourage the most effective bone healing, innovative orthopaedic implant devices that result in quicker recovery might become accessible.
Dr. Carmen Torres-Sanchez, who took control over the research, contrasted the implant designs used presently to innovative models to gain a more comprehensive understanding regarding what shapes bone-building cells prefer. The team discovered that cells are highly responsive to topology, which may be used to aid tissue healing.

Dr Torres-Sanchez explained that “Long-lasting successful implants, those that promote faster healing, without setbacks such as loosening or infections, without having second surgeries, are a no brainer”
“The patient can go back to doing their normal life sooner, relieving the burden on hospitals, physiotherapy, carers, and contributing to a healthier, happier, more active life. We are continuing to research on finetuning the designs, so we can find subsequent evolutions of these multifunctional scaffolds that are even more appealing to the cells.”
She hopes to “see clinical application in the very near future to help trauma and bone cancer patients.”
