Radiological, histological, and hematological evaluation of hydroxyapatite-coated resorbable magnesium alloy screws placed in rabbit tibia.


Titanium (Ti) screw has excellent mechanical property, and osseointegration capacity. However, they require surgery for removal. In contrast, polymer screws are resorbable, but they have poor mechanical properties. In this research, magnesium alloy screws (WE43: Mg-Y-Nd-Zr) that have advantages of titanium and polymer were manufactured. In addition, to… (More)
