Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue was designed to establish recent studies concerning new technologies, such as the use of new or modified materials to construct stents and implants. We are interested in research assessing biocompatibility of products in a human environment. Articles based on in vitro or in vivo studies are welcome. In recent years, one has observed the evolution in designing and constructing new devices. It concerns new antimitotic coatings on the surface of stents and the use nanoparticles. From clinical practice, we know that implants are not ideal ones. They have quite a lot of unwanted features, such as thrombogenicity, stimulating growth of endothelial and subendothelial cells, leading to occlusion of vessels following procedures. Surgery, traumatology, dentistry, cardio surgery, vascular surgery, phlebology are the fields mostly interested in development of this field.

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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2600 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.
