Antimicrobial silver-coating for locking plates shows uneventful osteotomy healing and good biocompatibility results of an experimental study in rabbits

Arens, Daniel ; Zeiter, Stephan ; Nehrbass, Dirk ; Ranjan, Nilabh ; Paulin, Thomas ; Alt, Volker


Infections after internal fixation of fractures remain a challenge. Silver is known for its antimicrobial activity, including activity against multi-resistant strains. The aim of the current study was to analyze the biocompatibility and potential influence on the osteotomy healing process of a silver-coating technology for locking plates compared to silver-free locking plates in an established ...
