Podiatric metallurgy and the effects of implanted metals on living tissues.

Abstract

The selection of metals and their alloys for implants and fixation devices represents a composite of desirable properties. The search for appropriate implantable materials began following the acceptance of internal fixation. Advances in the control of septic complications, together with recent metallurgical developments, have resulted in the safe application of metallic implants.
