Researchers are on the edge of making another medical breakthrough with the development of a biodegradable coating that will improve bone metal implants in the future.
A bone injury is not something that should be taken lightly by anyone. It is considered as one of the most painful and slow-healing injuries in medicine. Unlike normal flesh wounds that heal within a few days after being patched, fractures take weeks or months to heal, and often require metal implants to support healing.
Typically, medical implants are designed using surgical stainless steels, titanium alloys, and polymers. They are specifically made to support the body in repairing fractured bones. Without metal implants, injured bones may grow weak or worse, may not heal properly.
While metallic non-degradable implants are crucial in serious bone injuries, they have severe side effects that are harmful to people. Long-term exposure to these metallic alloys increases the risk of
