Questionnaire: Nitinol is a shape memory alloy that is a resourceful biomaterial due to its shape changing ability, biocompatibility and hyperelasticity [1]. Until now, very limited applications have been tested for use of Nitinol plates in the area of fracture fixation to improve healing [for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
