Paper Title:
Improving the Bioactivity and Biocompatibility of Acrylic Cements by Collagen Coating
  Abstract

Polymer-ceramic composites based on polymethyl methacrylate are widely used in orthopaedics as suture materials and fixation devices due to their biocompatibility and ability to support bony growth (osteoconductive) and also bone bioactive (to form a calcium phosphate layer on its surface). The aim of this study is to compare the microstructure, bioactivity and biocompatibility of new acrylic cement containing silver and collagen coated, with a comercial one, by in vitro study in simulated body fluid. In order to evaluate the properties of the surface layer, SEM microscopy and ATR-FTIR spectroscopy are used. The results indicates that both silver content and the presence of collagen layer favourise the mineralisation process at the surface.
