Nanostructured metals (Ti and Ti alloys, stainless steels, Mg alloys) with enhanced static and fatigue strengths are promising materials for medical implants. The use of a combined severe plastic deformation (SPD) processing, including the new equal channel angular pressing (ECAP)-Conform technique leads to significant strengthening of metallic rods due to material nanostructuring. In particular, the use of nanoTi rods with enhanced strength and fatigue life have enabled the fabrication of implants with improved design for dentistry and orthopaedics. Miniaturized dental implants and nanoTi plates with reduced thickness were manufactured and successfully tested in clinical trials.
