Titanium, niobium, zirconium, and tantalum for medical and surgical applications.

Ed. by Lyle D. Zardiackas et al.

ASTM International


265 pages



STP; 1471


Zardiackas (biomedical materials science, U. of Mississippi Medical Center) et al. assemble 19 papers given at the ASTM F04 symposium in November of 2004 held in Washington DC, which centered on alloys made up of titanium, niobium, zirconium, and tantalum, their processing techniques for medical applications, properties important for their use in biomedical applications, and evaluation of their biological and clinical performance. Applications discussed include implants, fracture mechanisms, and hip and joint replacements. Other essays consider corrosion and surface, fatigue, and cracking characteristics.
