Magnesium alloys are the focus of research as resorbable materials for osteosynthesis, as they provide sufficient stability and would make surgery to remove implants unnecessary. The new degradable magnesium alloy ZEK100 was developed to improve the stability and corrosion resistance by alloying with zinc, rare earth metals and zirconium. As the implants were degraded to only a limited extent after 6 months implantation in a previous in vivo study the present study was conducted to evaluate the… CONTINUE READING
