Biomaterials are used for making devices that can interact with biological systems of peoples who not only suffers from congenital heart, bone or dental diseases but even sometime young and dynamic people such as sportspersons need replacements due to fracture and excessive strain. The biomaterials are commonly used in dentistry, orthopedics, plastic and reconstructive surgery, ophthalmology, cardiovascular surgery, neurosurgery, immunology, histopathology, experimental surgery, and veterinary medicine etc. Biomaterials when placed inside the human body are called bio-implants. In spite of the technological advancements in the field of medical sciences, the infection and osteomyelitis are still noteworthy after implantation. Therefore, it is need of the hour to improve the performance of traditional biomaterials. This paper summarizes some recent trends and studies, in the research field of bio-implants, which are aimed at the enhancement of current generation biomaterials.
