Researchers develop new material that improves quality, durability of knee cartilage implants

Researchers of Valencia's Polytechnic University (UPV), the University of Notre Dame (USA) and the Technological University of Auckland (New Zealand), along with multinational company Zimmer, have developed a new material that improves the quality and durability of the articular cartilage implants used in knee operations. According to the tests carried out, with this new material, the implants could last up to 80% longer than the ones currently used. This work has been published in the Materials Science and Engineering journal.
