Axel Haverich "This Heart is mine – Autologisation of Surgical Implants"
The economic impact of medical device infection is dramatic, the consequences for the individual patient dire. A completely ingrown implant will never be prone to infection, a rule also true for autologous (the patient’s own) material used as replacement, e.g. valves or bypass material in heart surgery. Allogenic (from different individuals) or xenogenic (from different species) implants, however, are constantly attacked by the immune system, and infectious episodes have repeatedly shown to enhance this process of acute and chronic graft rejection.
Against the background of increasing numbers of medical device implantation due to our aging population, prevention and treatment of implant infection will be a prime target of future biomedical research. Biological implants, biofunctionalisation of implant surfaces to foster rapid ingrowth of autologous cells or incorporating anti-infectious agents as well as biologisation of surfaces by cell seeding using autologous material are the three most prominent avenues of research today.
The presentation will give the medical background from pertinent surgical disciplines, examples of the impact of device infection, and strategies currently pursued by researchers at MHH. Also, the structure and focus of REBIRTH, NIFE and the recently granted project ‘Biofabrication’ will be explained, advertising areas of potential future cooperation between MHH and HZI.
