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 1: Fundamentals and Vascular and Carrier 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 volume not only fully addresses the major issues of compatibility and functionality, but also provides a technical treatise on the design and evaluation of biomaterials for vascular applications and on biomaterials as carriers for bioactive agents. The discussion includes treatment of emerging materials and of the regulatory and technical forces that shape their development. A second volume, Biomaterials Engineering and Devices: Human Applications, Volume 2 is devoted to biomaterials for dental applications, bony biomaterials for grafting applications, and orthopedic fixtures and cements.
Extensively illustrated and referenced, Biomaterials Engineering and Devices: Human Applications, Volume 1: Fundamentals and Vascular and Carrier Applications integrates for today‚s bioengineering professionals the basic science, engineering, and practical medical experience needed to meet the ever-growing demand for new and better biomaterials.
