Abstract: Materials used for implant manufacture may play an important role in implant fixation. The choice of a material influences rigidity, corrosion characteristics, biocompatibility and tissue receptivity. The surface morphology of the implant affects its stability within the skeleton or within the surrounding cement mantle. This paper summarizes materials used in orthopedic implants, including metals and metal alloys, polymers and ceramics.
