Abstract

Statement of Purpose: Biomedical devices are at risk of infections by microbial contamination during surgery, by hematogenous dissemination of bacteria from infections elsewhere in the body, or by the entrance of bacteria through body orifices in contact with biomaterials1. Once on the surface, bacteria aggregate into biofilms leading to severe complications that compromise biomaterial function and patient morbidity. Biofilms are difficult to eradicate by conventional systemic antibiotic therapy, while other strategies such as chemical modification of the material surface with biocidal compounds and delivery of nanoparticles at the infected site, can induce multidrug-resistant strains and produce a toxic accumulation of unwanted products in other tissues, respectively2.
