About the Collection

BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders announces the launch of a Collection titled, Bone reconstruction technologies. This Collection aims to gather cutting-edge research and insights from the fields of orthopedics and osteology, focusing on the progress in bone reconstruction technologies.

This Collection explores a wide spectrum of topics, including but not limited to:

  • Biological and synthetic materials: developments in materials designed for bone regeneration and augmentation. Submissions on scaffolds, grafts, and composite synthetic materials are encouraged.
  • Innovations in implant design: showcasing the latest developments in implant design as well as insights into implant-associated techniques, complications and prevention strategies.
  • Biomolecular approaches: exploring the role of growth factors, cytokines, and other biomolecules in promoting bone healing and regeneration, along with investigations into their controlled delivery mechanisms.
  • Stem cells and tissue engineering: presenting studies on the therapeutic potential of stem cells, exosomes (or extracellular vesicles), and tissue engineering techniques in regenerating bone tissue, as well as the challenges and prospects of these approaches.
  • Clinical outcomes and patient perspectives: analyzing clinical outcomes of various bone reconstruction technologies, evaluating their long-term efficacy and patient satisfaction, and addressing the economic implications of adopting these innovations.
  • Bioinformatics and data-driven approaches: discussing the role of computational modeling, machine learning, and big data analytics in optimizing bone reconstruction strategies and predicting patient outcomes.
  • Artificial intelligence-based surgery planning systems, mixed reality, and robotics: examining the integration of advanced technology in planning, visualizing, and assisting in procedures for improved surgical precision and patient outcomes.

We encourage submissions that provide original research into the challenges, innovations, and potential directions within the realm of bone reconstruction technologies.

This Collection supports and amplifies research related to SDG 3: Good Health & Wellbeing.

Submission Guidelines

Back to top

This Collection welcomes submission of original Research Articles. Should you wish to submit a different article type, please read our submission guidelines to confirm that type is accepted by the journal. Articles for this Collection should be submitted via our submission system, Snapp. During the submission process you will be asked whether you are submitting to a Collection, please select "Bone reconstruction technologies" from the dropdown menu.

Articles will undergo the journal’s standard peer-review process and are subject to all of the journal’s standard policies. Articles will be added to the Collection as they are published.

The Editors have no competing interests with the submissions which they handle through the peer review process. The peer review of any submissions for which the Editors have competing interests is handled by another Editorial Board Member who has no competing interests.
