3/7/2013· The implants were made of a powdered metallurgically processed magnesium alloy: this aluminum-free material consists of MgYREZr (a material similar to WE43) that contains >90 wt% magnesium. With an average grain size of <5 μm, this high-performance alloy demonstrates an offset elastic limit of R p0.2 >250 MPa, tensile strength >275 MPa, and percent elongation at break >10%.

The peri-implant site of these implants showed superior bone contact after 3 months of healing, as depicted in Figure 6. These images are depictive of mature woven bone, which distinguishes between osteoblasts and fibroblast mineralization.
Researchers testing a magnesium alloy in a process called T-5 tempering have determined that clinical appliion of T-5 magnesium (which has mechanical properties similar to titanium) fares well in high-stress appliions. Its resorbable properties promote bone formation and healing with limited risk of infection. A key thought from the study is to develop nonabsorbable dental implants with
The SEM and AFM images of the tricalcium magnesium silie coating are also depicted in Fig 4(A) and 4(B), respectively. Moreover, the cross-section SEM image of the Ti-6Al-4V alloy coated by tricalcium magnesium silie is depicted in Fig 4(C).

Magnesium and its alloys—a new class of degradable metallic biomaterials—are being increasingly investigated as a promising alternative for medical implant and device appliions due to their advantageous mechanical and biological properties.
In the present study, micro-CT images and data were used to assess the degradation of micro arc-oxidized AZ31 magnesium alloy implants in vivo. Changes in the volume of the AZ31 implants were assessed, and the appliion of the degradable implant for
The aluminum–zinc containing magnesium alloys AZ31 and AZ91 as well as the alloy WE43 provided a higher degradation rate in vivo than the alloy LAE442 (Fig. 1). During implant degradation, the surface of the magnesium implant materials was coated with a

Except poor anti-corrosion, another challenge for Mg alloy as medical implant is the high risks of bacterial growth on the implant. The formation of bacterial biofilm at the tissue/implant interface may give rise to sustained infections and inflammation [5,6].
Magnesium-zinc alloys have the advantage of using zinc as a major alloying element that is considered biocompatible up to a daily dose of 11 mg. Mg-Zn-Zr was thus selected as the alloy system that was accordingly processed systematically varying the
