In this paper, four aspects of microrough surface of metallic biomaterials are reviewed: i.e., the preparation of microrough surface, the technology of surface roughness measurement, the parameters of roughness and the bio-effect of microrough surface. Microrough surfaces (roughness below 50 microns) are easily prepared and conveniently detected in practice. Microrough surfaces allow early better adhesion of mineral ions or atoms, biomolecules, and cells, form firmer fixation of bone or… CONTINUE READING
