Core Tip Current strategies to prevent orthopedic implant infections have focused on chemical measures. Our data suggest electrical currents may be useful in preventing Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli adhesion to titanium surfaces. Reduction in adhesion rates of up to 90% were observed when applying low intensity alternating currents on titanium surfaces. Further research is needed to consider the use of electrical currents for infection prevention in an in vivo scenario.
