Technical Principles, Design and Safety of Joint Implants
G. Buchhorn, Hans-Georg Willert
Hogrefe & Huber, 1994 - Medical - 431 pages
A summary of the state-of-the-art on factors decisive for the safety and long-term function of total joint replacements, in papers from the third Biomaterials Symposium, held in 1987 at the U. of Gottingen, Germany. The volume is divided into sections on requirements on implant security; strength of the biomaterials; tribology of various couplings; shape and dimensions; corrosion and degradation; implant anchorage; bone reaction and bioactivity; custom made implants; manufacturing and quality control; instruments and implant retrieval; clinical experiences, carcinogenicity, and other aspects. For clinicians and researchers from many fields interested in joint replacement. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
