Title
Surgical materials: Current challenges and nano-enabled solutions
Abstract

•Conventional surgical materials and their shortcomings were reviewed.•Nano-enabled surgical materials with their potential applications were discussed.•Nanomaterial-incorporated hemostats and antibacterial materials were reviewed.•Biomimetic nanostructured bioadhesives with improved adhesion were summarized.

Surgical adhesive biomaterials have emerged as substitutes to sutures and staples in many clinical applications. Nano-enabled materials containing nanoparticles or having a distinct nanotopography have been utilized for generation of a new class of surgical materials with enhanced functionality. In this review, the state of the art in the development of conventional surgical adhesive biomaterials is critically reviewed and their shortcomings are outlined. Recent advancements in generation of nano-enabled surgical materials with their potential future applications are discussed. This review will open new avenues for the innovative development of the next generation of tissue adhesives, hemostats, and sealants with enhanced functionality for various surgical applications.
