Although Ti alloys are generally regarded to be highly corrosion resistant, inflammatory conditions following surgery can instigate breakdown of the TiO2 passivation layer leading to an increased metal ion release. Furthermore proteins present in the surrounding tissue will readily adsorb on a titanium surface after implantation. In this paper alternating current electrophoretic deposition (AC-EPD) of bovine serum albumin (BSA) on Ti6Al4V was investigated in order to increase the corrosion resistance and control the protein adsorption capability of the implant surface...

Nowadays, biomaterials can be used to maintain or replace several functions of the human body if necessary. Titanium and its alloys, i.e. Ti6Al4V are the most common materials (70 to 80%) used for structural orthopedic implants due to their unique combination of good mechanical properties, corrosion resistance and biocompatibility. Addition of β-stabilizers, e.g. niobium, can improve the mechanical properties of such titanium alloys further, simultaneously offering excellent biocompatibility. In this in vitro study, human osteoblasts and fibroblasts were cultured on different niobium specimens (Nb Amperit, Nb Ampertec), Nb sheets and Ti-42Nb (sintered and 3D-printed by selective laser melting, SLM) and compared with forged Ti6Al4V specimens...

Titanium (Ti) staples are not biodegradable, and anastomotic complications related to Ti staples are reported frequently. In the present study, the biocompatibility and degradation behavior of high-purity magnesium (HP Mg) staples with the small intestine were investigated. HP Mg staples did not affect the relative growth rate, cell cycle and apoptosis of primary rectal mucosal epithelial cells (IEC-6) in vitro. At one, two and three days after immersion in intestinal juice, the weight of the 30 rinsed HP Mg staples reduced by 7...

Magnesium is a type of reactive metal, and is susceptible to galvanic corrosion. In the present study, the impact of coexistence of Ti on the corrosion behavior of high purity Mg (HP Mg) was investigated both in vitro and in vivo. Increased corrosion rate of HP Mg was demonstrated when Mg and Ti discs were not in contact. The in vivo experiments further confirmed accelerating corrosion of HP Mg screws when they were co-implanted with Ti screws into Sprague-Dawley rats' femur, spacing 5 and 10 mm. Micro CT scan and 3D reconstruction revealed severe corrosion morphology of HP Mg screws...

Six types of diamond-like carbon (DLC) coatings with zirconium (Zr)-containing interlayers on titanium alloy (Ti-6Al-4V) were investigated for improving the biotribological performance of orthopedic implants. The coatings consist of three layers: above the substrate a layer stack of 32 alternating Zr and ZrN sublayers (Zr:ZrN), followed by a layer comprised of Zr and DLC (Zr:DLC), and finally a N-doped DLC layer. The Zr:ZrN layer is designed for increasing load carrying capacity and corrosion resistance; the Zr:DLC layer is for gradual transition of stress, thus enhancing layer adhesion; and the N-doped DLC layer is for decreasing friction, squeaking noises and wear...

Magnesium alloys hold great promise for developing orthopedic implants that are biocompatible, biodegradable, and mechanically similar to bone tissue. This study evaluated the in vitro and in vivo antimicrobial properties of magnesium-9%aluminum-1%zinc (AZ91) and commercially pure titanium (cpTi) against Acinetobacter baumannii (Ab307). The in vitro results showed that as compared to cpTi, incubation with AZ91 significantly reduced both the planktonic (cpTi = 3.45e8, AZ91 = 8.97e7, p < 0.001) colony forming units (CFU) and biofilm-associated (cpTi = 3...

BACKGROUND: Titanium has outstanding corrosion resistance due to the thin protective oxide layer that is formed on its surface. Nevertheless, in harsh and severe environments, pure titanium may suffer localized corrosion. In those conditions, costly titanium alloys containing palladium, nickel and molybdenum are used. This purpose investigated how it is possible to control corrosion, at lower cost, by electrochemical surface treatment on pure titanium, increasing the thickness of the natural oxide layer...

It has been established that nitrogen implantation can modify metals surface properties such as corrosion, wear, friction, etc. Recent studies have shown that nitrogen implantation into titanium and its alloys leads to the formation of titanium nitride, which has interesting biological, chemical, and mechanical properties. In the present investigation, commercially pure biocompatible titanium implanted by nitrogen. Implantation of ions performed at 80 keV and a dose of 2.1 × 10(18) ions/cm(2) at four different temperatures of 300, 473, 673 and 873 k...

Metal implants for osteosynthesis are nowadays standard in orthopedic and trauma surgery. Steel implants, especially cerclages, bands and wires, can show more corrosion due to friction and lead to encapsulation in connective tissue with fluid borders even without loosening. Corrosion and fluid borders are potentially more susceptible to incompatibility and infections. Titanium implants have the advantage of better allergic compatibility. Problems may occur in material removal, especially with titanium implants because material fractures occur more frequently...

Titanium and its alloys are widely used in orthopedic and dental implants, however, some major clinical concerns such as poor wear resistance, lack of bioactivity, and bone resorption due to stress shielding are yet to be overcome. In order to improve these drawbacks, highly porous Ti samples having functionalized surfaces were developed by powder metallurgy with space holder technique followed by anodic treatment. Tribocorrosion tests were performed in 9g/L NaCl solution using a unidirectional pin-on-disc tribometer under 3N normal load, 1Hz frequency and 4mm track diameter...

BACKGROUND: Increased modularity in total hip arthroplasty (THA) through extra junction between the neck and the femoral stem is gaining popularity among orthopaedic community. However, the advantage of the additional junction is shadowed by an increased risk of mechanical failure. The aim of this study was to describe the exact mechanism of fracture of the modular femoral neck in an uncemented stem. METHODS: Clinical, metallurgical, and mechanical analysis including finite-element modelling and elemental-sensitive tissue analysis with the micro-PIXE method was performed on two patients treated with fully modular primary THA made from Titanium alloy of the same oval taper-cone design...

Untypical corrosion damage including erosions combined with the build-up of titanium oxide as a corrosion product on the surface of explanted Nitinol spinal rods in the areas where it was in contact with titanium pedicle screw head is reported. It was suggested that Nitinol rods might have inferior fretting corrosion resistance compared with that made of titanium or CoCr. Fretting corrosion of Nitinol spinal rods with titanium (Ti6Al4V) pedicle screws were tested in-vitro by conducting a series of potentiostatic measurements of the peak-to-peak values of fretting corrosion current under bending in a 10% solution of calf serum in PBS...

The interfacial pH value has a marked effect on cell viability because the pro-mineralization activity of osteoblasts increases at alkaline extracellular pH, whereas the pro-resorptive activity of osteoclasts increases under more acidic conditions. To obtain the more favorable alkaline interface, we developed a novel nanotube layer that was incorporated with magnesium oxide on a titanium implant substrate (MgO/NT/Ti) via ethylenediamine tetraacetic acid (EDTA) chelation. This facile immersion-annealing process successfully created a homogeneous magnesium oxide layer with sustained release kinetics and superior hydrophilicity according to the surface characterization and microenvironment measurement...

INTRODUCTION: Modular total hip arthroplasty implants can help the operating surgeon reproduce the optimum limb length and offset; however, the modularity can lead to fretting and corrosion with associated metal-related problems. Although metal-on-metal bearings are often reported to have problems, recent case reports suggest that the problems can occur with any articulation, usually as a result of problems at the head/neck junction. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed three cases of a specific implant combination with nontraumatic trunnion failure, with two cases presenting as acute complete dissociation of the femoral head from the neck...

Titanium and its alloys are common biomedical materials owing to their combination of mechanical properties, corrosion resistance and biocompatibility. Powder metallurgy (PM) techniques can be used to fabricate biomaterials with tailored properties because changing the processing parameters, such as the sintering temperature, products with different level of porosity and mechanical performances can be obtained. This study addresses the production of the biomedical Ti-6Al-7Nb alloy by means of the master alloy addition variant of the PM blending elemental approach...
