Metals and their alloys are one of the oldest biomedical materials in human beings. They still play an irreplaceable role in modern clinical treatment with excellent mechanical load-bearing properties, chemical stability and good biocompatibility. In recent years, the R&D and design of metal implants and devices, the further exploration of their powerful functions and the in-depth exploration of their interaction with the body microenvironment have made great progress. In particular, the design of biodegradable alloys, the elaboration of their degradation mechanism in different environments, the research on degradation behavior and degradation products, and the prospect of their advanced exclusive coating have attracted the attention of scholars
The aim of this Special Issue, “Advanced Alloy Degradation and Implants”, is to publish research articles in full length, short communications, and review articles covering the latest studies, progress, and challenges on the design, fabrication, degradation and surface modification of metal alloy implants for their future biomedical applications.
Topics addressed in this Special Issue may include, but are not limited to:
- Design, fabrication, and characterization of new alloy implants and devices;
- Coatings of metallic implants or biomaterials;
- Biomedical alloy degradation;
- Computational modelling and numerical simulation of alloy implants and their surface;
- Composite materials composed of metals and other materials;
- The interactions between alloy implants and cells.
