Porous nickel–titanium (NiTi) shape memory alloy is a prospective orthopedic biomaterial due to its porous structure that allows bone tissue and blood vessel ingrowth during fixation of implants. Unfortunately, the higher probability of Ni release from the increased surface area of a porous surface compared to conventional dense NiTi shape memory alloys causes more serious health concerns. In order to mitigate leaching of harmful Ni ions, we create a firm barrier layer on the surface by… CONTINUE READING
