Abstract

Implants that can be metabolized by the human body have appeared as one of the most attractive and promising solutions to overcome limitations and improve the features of current implantable devices. Biodegradable polymers and magnesium (Mg) alloys have played an important role writing the history of resorbable implants [1,2]. This paper presents the processing by extrusion/compression moulding, mechanical characterization, thermal characterization and in vitro biocompatibility of a novel generation of resorbable materials based on a polymeric matrix reinforced with metallic Mg particles.
