Magnesium-Based Intramedullary Nailing System in a Sheep Model: Biomechanic Evaluation and First In Vivo Results

Magnesium-Based Intramedullary Nailing System in a Sheep Model: Biomechanic Evaluation and First In Vivo Results

The tibia is one of the most frequently fractured bones in humans as in animals, and is predominantly treated by intramedullary nailing. However, existing intramedullary nailing systems are consisting of non-degradable material leading to a second surgery for removal. Therefore degradable implant materials as magnesium alloys have been part of the scientific research for years. Especially the slow degrading magnesium alloy LAE442 showed a good biocompatibility but has not been examined as an osteosynthesis system yet.
