Williams [18] defined the biomaterial requirements of total joint replacements in terms of biocompatibility as, optimizing the rate and quality of bone apposition to the material, minimizing the release rate of corrosion and the tissue response to the released particles, minimizing the release rate of wear debris and the tissue reaction to this debris and optimizing the biomechanical environment in order to minimize disturbance to homeostasis in the bone and surrounding soft tissue.
