Paper Title:
Newly Formed Bone around Implanted New Titanium Alloy: Ti-15%Zr-4%Nb-4%Ta
  Abstract

We have developed a new Ti alloy, Ti-15%Zr-4%Nb-4%Ta alloy (Ti-15-4-4) that showed higher biological safety and mechanical properties than the currently used Ti-6%Al-4%V alloy. The purpose of this study is to determine the biological performance of the new alloy. Ti-15-4-4 implants (machined or blasted) were placed in surgically created defects in rabbit femurs. The rabbits were sacrificed after 4, 8, 16, 24 and 48 weeks. Bone mineral density (BMD) and area of newly formed bone around the implants were measured using micro-CT. Results showed that the Ti-15-4-4 alloy is biocompatible and forms new bone around the Ti-15-4-4 implant, regardless of the surface treatment. The BMD and area of newly formed bone around the blasted implant surfaces were significantly greater than those around the machined surfaces. These results indicate that the new Ti-15-4-4 alloy has a potential for use as implants and has the advantage of improved mechanical properties described in earlier studies.
