Tomsk Polytechnic University (TPU). The developments of scientists are able to save people from pain and return to a full life. Engineering developments have become an integral part of modern micine. Thanks to them, doctors have receiv, among other things, the ability to successfully implant artificial body parts. Innovative implants are projects in the field of health engineering that TPU scientists are implementing with the support of the Priority 2030 feral program. In implantology, as in any area of ??life, there is a so-call “classic of the genre”. A broken bone or part of it can be replac by a metal implant. For their production, an alloy of titanium, vanadium or zirconium is most often us. Everything would be fine if not for one significant “but”: there is always a danger that the immune system will begin to rebel against the implant and the body will reject the foreign body. The task of scientists is to ruce this risk. The staff of the Scientific and ucational Center B.P. Weinberg TPU under the leadership of Sergey Tverdokhlebov found a way to “deceive” the body. Scientists have develop several technologies and equipment for the formation of calcium phosphate coatings on the implant surface. The calculation is as follows: calcium and phosphorus form the basis of bone tissue – if the implant is cover with a layer of these elements, the body takes it as “its own”. Tomsk scientists were able to improve the biocompatibility of coronary stents, this time applying a multilayer coating of titanium oxynitrides and a bioresorbable composite layer with nanoparticles, the modification technology of which was propos by TPU chemists. Coatings as a way to disguise Implants with bioactive coatings are widely us in regenerative micine. One of such developments of Tomsk Polytechnics is steel wires that are implant inside the tubular bone and us as a “conductor” that helps to form new bone tissue.
