Biomaterials associated infection (BAI) is one of the most common complications associated with implantation of any biomaterial regardless of form or function. These infections usually involve bacterial colonization and biofilm formation on the biomaterial itself, rendering the infection impervious to antimicrobials and host defenses. In addition, it is becoming increasingly clear that infection of the surrounding tissues also plays an important role in BAI, and that the infection may be influenced by the composition and design of the implanted biomaterial.

The initial design criteria in the choice of indwelling materials for medical and dental purposes may be pragmatic, and based on the necessary mechanical properties required to fashion a functional device. Orthopedic implants require strong materials for weight-bearing, and articulating surfaces such as joints require durability and resistance to wear. Stents and shunts require flexibility and patency, and sutures require a high tensile strength yet also must be flexible enough for intricate manipulation. As the devices became more sophisticated and

This chapter focuses on adhesives used in direct physiological contact in dental and medical procedures. Activity in both areas has been quite extensive outside the United States for decades. In contrast, adhesive use in medical devices, patches, and plasters has been ongoing in the United States for a long time. In the case of medical devices, adhesion is concerned with the joining of materials such as plastics, elastomers, textiles, metals, and ceramics, which are examined in other chapters of the

Silver Nanocomposite Material as Antibacterial Coating on Indwelling Medical Devices-Based Biomaterials

The most common type of adverse events in healthcare in Canada reported by the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) are nosocomial infections. Amongst nosocomial infections, implant associated infections have been reported to be most common. Despite having the implantation surgeries carefully performed, a small, but still considerable number of devices gets colonized by bacteria resulting in implant associated infections and/or surgical site infections. The patients are then started on high dose antibiotics, which if ineffective, is followed by
