Synopsis : Biomaterials is a field that continues to attract a significant amount of attention from researchers, industry, educationalists and regulators. This book is the first to provide readers with an understanding of fundamental theory relating to the use of metals in biomedical applications in addition to comprehensively covering applied aspects encompassing practical and technical advantages and disadvantages. Topics highlighted in the book include guidelines for selecting materials; shape memory alloys; degradation and surface modification; adhesion to ceramics and polymers; biocompartibility and tissue?implant interactions; and European and North American regulatory issues.

Quatrième de couverture: The Biomaterials Science and Engineering Series is designed to help stimulate further developments in biomaterials science and engineering by disseminating up?to?the?minute, quality information to academic and industrial research and development scientists employed in all areas of the medical, biomedical and bioengineering sciences whether in medical device R&D, pharmaceutical and pharmacological research or materials science, and to clinical specialists in prosthetics and surgery.

Contrary to popular belief, the future for metals and alloys as biomaterials is strong. State?of?the?art engineering methods, combined with the intrinsic strengths of metals, have resulted in considerably improved and new types of medical device. This timely reference provides a detailed appraisal of:
? biomaterial selection, with emphasis on mechanical strength, fatigue resistance and fracture toughness

? the inherent shortcomings of metals and how best to deal with them

? shape memory alloys

? surface treatment, thin organic coatings, and polymer?metal macrocomposites

? tissue?implant interactions and biocompatibility

? x?ray photoelectron spectroscopy and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy
Metals as Biomaterials draws on the expertise of international contributors to form a comprehensive handbook that is essential reading for all professionals involved with R&D and innovation in materials engineering for medical applications.
