A dichotomy in the types of medical applications has also emerged, in which some families of BMGs are being developed for permanent devices whilst another family – of Mg-based alloys – is showing promise in bioabsorbable implants. The current status of these metallurgical and technological developments is summarized.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Wiley||Journal:||Advanced Materials||Volume:||28||Issue:||27||Start page:||5755||End page:||5762||Copyright (published version):||2016 the Authors||Keywords:||Bulk metallic glasses; Bioinert systems; Bioresorbable systems||DOI:||10.1002/adma.201505347||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
