Surface modification of magnesium alloys developed for bioabsorbable orthopedic implants: a general review.

Abstract

As a bioabsorbable metal with mechanical properties close to bone, pure magnesium or its alloys have great potential to be developed as medical implants for clinical applications. However, great efforts should be made to avoid its fast degradation in vivo for orthopedic applications when used for fracture fixation. Therefore, how to decease degradation rate… (More)
