Cardiovascular Biomaterials presents current research mate-rial developed by contributors from universities und profes-sional laboratories in the UK,USA, Canada, and Germany,each recognised for their abilities in this field.The bookbegins with an introduction to the work of developing a newartificial artery, and proceeds through the topics of theproblems and developments in heart valve replacements, car-diac assist devices, mechanical properties of arteries andarterial grafts, biostability of vascular prostheses, bloodcompatibility in cardiopulmonary bypass, collagenin cardio-vascular tissues and the pacemaker system. Researchers,practitioners, graduate students, and libraries will findthe book of interest.
