Influence of the microstructure and topography on the barrier properties of oxide scales generated on blasted Ti6Al4V surfaces.


The long-term interfacial bond between an implant and bone may be improved by creating a rough surface on the implant in order to increase the surface area available for bone/implant apposition. A natural consequence of surface roughening is an increase in metal ion release, which is itself a surface dominated process. Based on this fact, the aim of this… (More)
