It has been shown that introducing porous structure in titanium and its alloys implant material is an effective way to reduce the “stress shielding” effect [1,2]. Interconnected pores in titanium and its alloys not only can decrease Young’s modulus through tailoring porosity but also can enhance bone ingrowth and improve fixation [3,4]. Therefore, design, fabrication, mechanical behavior and biocompatibility of porous titanium and its alloys have become a research focus in this field. Development of fabrication methods, together with studies of mechanical behavior and biocompatibility is beneficial to improve the performance of porous titanium and its alloys for implant applications.
