Bioresorbable magnesium implants are considered as promising biomaterials of the future in the surgery. In vitro testing for qualification of magnesium materials as biomaterials is a big challenge, because the material behavior has to be predicted for a long period of time. There is a generally great demand for qualification of materials for application as bioresorbable implants without referring to animal experiments. The aim of the project is the development of a short-term corrosion fatigue testing method with which the material behavior using the example of the magnesium alloy WE43 MEO in the human body can be estimated time accelerated as well as in vitro.
Duration: 2018 until 2021
