The structure and mechanical properties of nanostructured titanium VT1-0 derived using an ingenious method which combines helical and longitudinal rolling are studied in comparison with the properties of commercial titanium alloys VT6 and VT16, as well as VT1-0 in a coarse-grained state. The mechanical properties of these materials are studied using quasi-static tensile and torsion tests (including finished products, i.e., implants for osteosynthesis), as well as fatigue tests. It is shown that the use of the developed method of severe plastic deformation is an efficient mode for the formation of a high-strength nanostructured state in titanium VT1-0, which exhibits sensitivity to stress concentrators under cyclic loading that is characteristic of titanium alloys and an extremely high reserve of torsional plasticity.
