Significance for science
Research within this project enriches the scientific community with new important results. Interdisciplinarity of the project will broaden the scientific methodology which could not be developed within individual scientific field – chemistry and medicine. Consequently, each of these two sciences will gain and deepen the knowledge of its basic and applied research. Proposed interdisciplinary approach will thus enable more qualitative treatment of the field of metallic implants and their impact in human body. To the best of our knowledge, we have found no study dealing with the effect of sinovial fluid components on the corrosion stability of implant alloys. We therefore expect that the results of our study are be relevant for the publication in excellent scientic journals.
Significance for the country
Results of the proposed project contribute to the understanding of functioning metallic implants in vivo. In perspective this will contribute to their increased survivorship. Revision operations are not only unpleasant personal experience for the patient due to pain, limited range of motion and lastingness postoperative convalescence but also a financial burden to the health care funds and consequently to the society as a whole. With the scientific methodology and organizational approach we follow the trends in the scientific reseacrh, as evidenced by published scientific papers in leading orthopaedic journals and presentations at international conferences. This process certainly strenghten the position of Slovenia as an important country at the world scientific map.
