About the book
BIOMATERIALS are used in medical devices, providing needs in such diverse surgical disciplines as ophthalmology, cardiology, neuromuscular surgery, orthopedics, dentistry etc. They must have intimated contact with patient’s tissue or body fluid providing a real physical interface, which restricts developments most seriously.
This book is written for those who would like to advance their knowledge of biomaterials. The subject matter of the book is divided into twelve chapters dealing with structure and relationship of biological and manmade biomaterials. The application of these materials for various medical devices and recent developments in tissue engineering has also been covered.
• Tissue Engineering
o Cell scaffold proteins
o Fibrin hydrogels
o Collagen-based hydrogels and microspheres
• Micro and Nano-Engineered Biomaterials
