Mechanical and Corrosion Behaviour of Some Devices for Ostheosinthesis


Article Preview

Orthopaedic implants represent mechanical devices which may be used for different purposes in human skeleton. such as either repairing of soft tissues (ligaments) or hard tissues (fractures. osteotomy. partial or total replacements). The aim of present paper is to put in evidence some macro and micro structural features revealed at state of surface after 5 months of implant in a female femoral fracture. Investigated surfaces were analyzed by optical and scanning electron microscopy and by X-Rays diffraction.
