Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Urogynecologic disorders, including urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse, affect a growing number of women worldwide, often impairing their quality of life. Biomaterials have emerged as promising solutions to address these conditions, offering the potential for improved therapeutic outcomes and enhanced patient well-being. This Special Issue, Biomaterials for Urogynecologic Applications, seeks to highlight innovative biomaterials, their fabrication methods, and their clinical applications in the realm of urogynecology. Contributions may consider various biomaterial types, such as synthetic polymers, natural polymers, hydrogels, composites, nanoparticles, and tissue-engineered constructs. Research articles, reviews, and case studies covering topics like biocompatibility, mechanical properties, drug delivery systems, tissue regeneration, and surgical implants are welcome.

The scope of this Special Issue encompasses, but is not limited to, the following themes: the development and characterization of novel biomaterials, the evaluation of their biocompatibility and functional properties, their interaction with host tissues, pre-clinical and clinical studies, and their translation into urogynecologic practice. By bringing together experts from multidisciplinary backgrounds, this Special Issue aims to accelerate the advancement of biomaterials for urogynecologic applications and foster collaborations between researchers, clinicians, and industry professionals.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Bioengineering is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2700 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
