Previous research on the feasibility of using biodegradable magnesium alloys for bone implant applications mainly focused on biocompatibility and corrosion resistance. However, successful clinical employment of endosseous implants is largely dependent on biological fixation and anchorage in host bone to withstand functional loading. In the present study, we therefore aimed to investigate whether bone-implant interface strength and osseointegration of a novel biodegradable magnesium alloy (Mg-Y… CONTINUE READING
