Loss of limbs or destruction of bones in accidents and warfare requires part or full replacement of this injured body parts and more specifically bones for their full recovery. The materials that can be used as artificially bio implants for the replacement must be biocompatible with the host human body and also it must possess very high mechanical properties in order to withstand high wear and stresses involved in various joints. The present paper aims to provide the reader an understanding of the type of material used for bone implant scaffold with special reference to their mechanical and biocompatible properties.
