BIOMEDICAL APPLICATIONS OF TITANIUM AND ITS ALLOYS
Authors: Sajad Hussain Din
Abstract: Titanium and their alloys are biocompatible, corrosion resistant, good machinability, better fatigue strength and relatively low modulus of elasticity. Due to these desirable properties, they generally have cardiac and cardiovascular applications. For modern clinical requirements a proper tailoring of these materials can be done by surface modifications. This article gives a general perspective of surface modifications of titanium and its alloys. By allowing surface modifications of titanium and its alloys, properties of these materials can be changed in order to improve their biomedical applications.
Keywords: Bio-compatibility, titanium and its alloys, surface modifications
