Scientists developed porous material with improved biocompatibility

SPhTI (Siberian Institute of Physics and Technology) TSU materials scientists have developed a new method of obtaining a biocompatible porous alloy based on titanium nickelide to create implants. Due to special terraces (roughness) on the surface of the pore walls of the alloy, the specific surface area is increased, and this reduces the time it takes for the implant to succeed. This method obtains material with improved characteristics without any specific preparation. The technology is already used to create dental implants. Now scientists are optimizing the material for its use in traumatology and oncology, and the method is being examined for a patent.
