Bottom Line: The SLM produced magnesium was compared with the titanium alloy TiAl6V4, as titanium is already established for the SLM-process.For testing the biocompatibility, we used primary murine osteoblasts.Results showed a reduced corrosion rate and good biocompatibility of the SLM produced magnesium with PCL coating.

ABSTRACT
Degradable implant material for bone remodeling that corresponds to the physiological stability of bone has still not been developed. Promising degradable materials with good mechanical properties are magnesium and magnesium alloys. However, excessive gas production due to corrosion can lower the biocompatibility. In the present study we used the polymer coating polycaprolactone (PCL), intended to lower the corrosion rate of magnesium. Additionally, improvement of implant geometry can increase bone remodeling. Porous structures are known to support vessel ingrowth and thus increase osseointegration. With the selective laser melting (SLM) process, defined open porous structures can be created. Recently, highly reactive magnesium has also been processed by SLM. We performed studies with a flat magnesium layer and with porous magnesium implants coated with polymers. The SLM produced magnesium was compared with the titanium alloy TiAl6V4, as titanium is already established for the SLM-process. For testing the biocompatibility, we used primary murine osteoblasts. Results showed a reduced corrosion rate and good biocompatibility of the SLM produced magnesium with PCL coating.

Mentions: A titanium implant with 250 µm pore and strut size and a flat magnesium layer on titanium were produced by SLM and provided for in vitro experiments. A porous magnesium implant was manufactured of pure magnesium by SLM (Figure 1). The highest possible resolution achieved using the SLM process was 600 µm pore size.
