|Abstract||In this study the loss of mechanical properties and the interface strength of coated AZ31B magnesium alloy (a magnesium-aluminum alloy) screws with surrounding host tissues were investigated and compared with non-coated AZ31B, degradable polymer and biostable titanium alloy screws in a rabbit animal model after 1, 4, 12 and 21 weeks of implantation. The interface strength was evaluated in terms of the extraction torque required to back out the screws. The loss of mechanical properties over time was indicated by one-point bending load loss of the screws after these were extracted at different times. AZ31B samples with a silicon-containing coating had a decreased degradation rate and improved biological properties. The extraction torque of Ti6AI4V, poly-L-lactide (PLLA) and coated AZ31B increased significantly from 1 week to 4 weeks post-implantation, indicating a rapid osteosynthesis process over 3 weeks. The extraction torque of coated AZ31B increased with implantation time, and was higher than that of PLLA after 4 weeks of implantation, equalling that of Ti6AI4V at 12 weeks and was higher at 21 weeks. The bending loads of non-coated AZ31B and PLLA screws degraded sharply after implantation, and that of coated AZ31B degraded more slowly. The biodegradation mechanism, the coating to control the degradation rate and the bioactivity of magnesium alloys influencing the mechanical properties loss over time and bone-implant interface strength are discussed in this study and it is concluded that a suitable degradation rate will result in an improvement in the mechanical performance of magnesium alloys, making them more suitable for clinical application.
