About this book


The medical device industry faces critical ongoing challenges in the search for new and better materials for advanced medical applications and to replace old materials that no longer stand the test of time. In Biomaterials Engineering and Devices: Human Applications, Volume 2: Orthopedic, Dental, Bone Graft Applications, authoritative international experts comprehensively review many current state-of-the-art uses of polymers, metals, and ceramics in the human body. A veritable encyclopedia of valuable data and experience, this important new reference work is devoted to dental biomaterials, bony biomaterials for grafting applications, and orthopedic fixtures and cements. The discussion includes treatment of emerging materials and of the regulatory and technical forces that will shape their development. The first volume, Biomaterials Engineering and Devices: Human Applications, Volume 1 discusses the design and evaluation of biomaterials for vascular applications and on biomaterials as carriers for bioactive agents.
Extensively illustrated and richly referenced, Biomaterials Engineering and Devices: Human Applications, Volume 2: Orthopedic, Dental, and Bone Graft Applications integrates for today‚s bioengineering professionals all the basic science, and engineering, as well as practical medical experience, needed to meet the ever-growing demand for new and better biomaterials.
