Research Development of Biomedical Titanium Alloy


Article Preview

Biomedical titanium alloys can be used for replacement and repair surgeries of human hard tissues. In recent years, the new b type titanium alloys with low elastic moduli and excellent biocompatibility have been developed by choosing low cytotoxic elements. Furthermore, new type of porous titanium alloys can lower elastic modulus effectively and contribute to the ingrowth of tissues. The present research status of new b type titanium alloys and porous titanium alloys have been introduced in this literature, the future research trend has also been discussed.
