Incorporation of the Biphasic plating concept into anatomically contoured locking plates

The Biphasic Plate is a novel fixation concept developed at QUT for the treatment of fractures that is intended to support early full weight bearing. The concept has thus far been developed into an approved implant for distal femur fractures and has been used clinically. However, questions remain surrounding the use of the Biphasic Plate in certain borderline indications. For instance, in certain unstable fracture types, a technique know as double-plating is used to stabilise distal femur fractures, with a …

Understanding and manipulating bacterial motility for infection control

The recent COVID 19 pandemic reminds us of how difficult it is to control infectious diseases. Pathogenic microorganisms are known to be extremely 'smart' and are able to quickly develop mechanisms against most of our strategies aimed at eradicating them. Our group is focused on bacterial infections to implants and medical devices. We are in the pursuit to outsmart the bacteria to develop the next generation medical device and implant materials.Bacterial motility/movement and group-coordination on surfaces and in 3-dimensional environment …

Bacteria - mammalian cell interactions in implant-associated infections

The recent COVID-19 pandemic reminds us of how difficult it is to control infectious diseases. Pathogenic microorganisms are known to be extremely 'smart' and are able to quickly develop mechanisms against most of our strategies aimed at eradicating them. Our group is focused on bacterial infections to implants and medical devices. We are in the pursuit to outsmart the bacteria to develop the next generation medical device and implant materials.Anthony Gristina conceptualized in 1987 that bacteria compete with tissue cells …
