Abstract : Orthopedic implants, including artificial joints and fracture fixation devices, have helped to restore the physical independence of many patients, thereby improving the quality of their lives. Titania (Ti) and its alloys are better implant materials than stainless steel and Co–Cr alloys owing to their superior mechanical properties and biocompatibility; however, Ti-based implants may sometimes fail, leading to repeated surgeries. With the recent advancements in nanotechnology, the nanosurface modifications of Ti, especially in the form of Ti nanotubes (TNTs), have drastically improved the properties of orthopedic implants. In this review, we have summarized the fabrication of Ti nanotubes by electrochemical anodization and their influence on osteoblast cells and staphylococcus aureus. In addition, we have discussed the corrosion resistance of Ti nanotubes.
