Enhancement of osteoblast function upon electrical stimulation on anodized titanium

Currently used titanium implants in orthopedics have a limited lifespan of only 10–15 years. The limited ability of the titanium implant to remain bonded to juxtaposed bone is one of the leading reasons for implant failures. In order to improve cytocompatibility properties, it has been proposed to modify titanium through anodization to create a nanotubular… CONTINUE READING
