.... Therefore, it is imperative that biocompatible materials of the highest possible strength be used for prostheses so that the highest possible stresses can be tolerated. In this instance, a class of materials was chosen that was probably marginally biocompatible but that possessed less than half the strength...

... to be used in living bodies began with the introduction of new alloys using biocompatible β stabilizer elements, such as iron, tantalum, zirconium, tin, and niobium. [ 3 ] The manufacturing of implant materials generally requires advanced casting and/or continuous forging processes. The implants...
