A lotus root inspired implant system with fever responsive characteristics and 3D printing defined nano-antibiotic release patterns

Abstract

Lotus root imitated implant scaffolds with highly flexible drug release patterns were fabricated. Several critical release parameters could be conveniently prearranged through creating a precisely customized inner chamber via 3D printing. Furthermore, when postoperative infection caused hyperthermia, the inner drugs could be spontaneously released to inhibit the invasive pathogens.
