Abstract
316L Stainless steel is one of the most used metallic material in orthopedical prosthesis, osteosinthesis plates, and cardiovascular stents. One of the main problems this material presents is the nickel and chromium release, specially the Ni ion release that provokes allergy in a high number of patients. Recently, experimental applications in vitro and in vivo seem to indicate that the thickness of the nature oxide of the stainless steel results in very strong reinforcement of the biological res...
