Biomaterials And Bioengineering Handbook
Donald Lee Wise
Marcel Dekker, 2000 - Biomedical engineering - 920 pages
This reference reports on progress in the development of materials used in or on the human body, ranging from biopolymers used in controlled-release drug delivery systems and prosthetic devices to metals used in bone repair and 'plastics' used in absorbable mechanisms such as sutures. A broad panel of engineers, designers, materials scientists, and physicians provide a multidimensional and interdisciplinary approach for this encyclopedic resource, offering highly detailed descriptions of actual clinical applications of biomaterials. Examines both research and clinical issues surrounding traditional and emerging biomaterials from a variety of professional perspectives.
