Considering the sensitivity of both fatigue strength and corrosion rate to the surface characteristics, apposite surface treatments could address the related challenges for biodegradable magnesium-based materials. Herein, we treated the surface of a biocompatible magnesium alloy by a low cost and versatile severe plastic deformation technique, severe shot peening, to evaluate the potential of surface grain refinement to enhance functionality in biological environment. The evolution of surface… Expand
