Phys.org has showcased recent research from IMDEA Materials Institute and German medical equipment manufacturer Meotec GmbH outlining the development of the world’s first industrially scalable surface modification process for bioabsorbable magnesium alloy wires.
The findings, as reported in two recently published scientific papers in the journal Biomaterials Advances, could have a significant impact in the future use of such wires for biomedical applications.
Surface-modified magnesium wires offer enormous potential in the biomedical field, from use in implants, wound closure, cardiovascular stents, nerve regeneration, and as polymer reinforcement in trauma fixation plates.
