In the case of conventional Ti-based biomaterials, such as Ti-6Al-4V and Nitinol, the release of Al, V and Ni has been shown to be detrimental to the human body and in this context, Ti-Ta alloys have been proposed as one of the best options for biomedical devices. The main focus of this study is to review the different chemical composition of manufactured Ti-Ta alloys, their various techniques of fabrication as well as the microstructure, mechanical properties and corrosion resistance. The paper sought to give an idea of the scope of the research and effort that has gone into developing a high-quality titanium medical device.
