Summary and Future Directions

In summary, Mg alloys are promising next-generation biomaterials for musculoskeletal-related applications due to their unique mechanical and degradation properties. Further research is necessary to improve the design and processing of novel Mg alloys for applications in orthopedic/craniofacial implants and fixation devices. Controlling the degradation and metabolism of Mg in vivo is the key issue. Lastly, Mg-based implants may play a key role in the design of responsive, sensor-based, orthopedic implants.
