Evaluation of biodegradable magnesium alloys for orthopaedic applications

Abstract:

The use of bio-materials in medical applications has risen exponentially in recent years, where applications range from the treatment of early stage disease to implants for major trauma. Particularly, research on biodegradable metallic materials have demonstrated potential step-change technologies which may revolutionise the treatment of broken bones. Implants made with biodegradable metals are significantly stronger than their polymer counterparts. They are also fully biodegradable i...
