About this Book

The innovation of new materials for implants to achieve enhanced performance and lifetimes in the body could directly leed both to quality of life for patients and opportunities for wealth creation in associated industries. Some notable examples of major clinical applications of hard-tissue implants are in total joint replacement, spinal protheses, and dental tooth roots. Other topics addressed in this book are soft tissue implants, drug release technology, and corrosion and allergies of biomaterials.
