Crevice corrosion is reported in a ‘rejected’ stainless steel nail-plate implant removed 11 months after implantation, corrosion was observed in the areas of implant which were inaccessible for cleaning and sterilization under routine practice. The implant was analysed to be biocompatible. Scrubbing of the implant with a detergent and rinsing in a jet of steaming water before autoclaving is recommended to minimize crevice corrosion.
