Standard metallic orthopedic materials include stainless steel, cobalt-based alloys, commercially pure titanium and titanium-based alloys. Although Ti and its alloys are preferred nowadays, stainless steel is still the most used metal for internal fixation devices. This is due to its useful combination of mechanical properties, acceptable biocompatibility and cost effectiveness in comparison to other metallic implant materials.
