Biomaterials - Classification, Technical and Experimental Aspects
While, from the chemical point of view, all these synthetics are completely biocompatible, some physical and structural properties of the prostheses are associated with certain complications. However, these complications are entirely preventable if their causes are recognized in advance and accounted for.
