Abstract Scope Despite sterilization and aseptic procedure, bacterial infection remains a key challenge in total hip arthroplasties. This fact emphasizes urgent need for developing new implant systems, which should release drug in a controlled manner without sparing its mechanical and tribological properties. Currently available means for loading and releasing drug are not as effective, as the release is either for too short period or there is a problem with mechanical integrity and osteointegration on drug releasing surfaces. In the present study, we are aiming to modifying different parts of total hip implant to load drug and get it released for longer time. We have taken the inner lining of acetabular cup and femoral stem surface as the regions to load drug. We have also developed techniques to modify these surfaces and load drug in a way to release for longer time, but without affecting mechanical, tribological and biological behavior of the surface.
