Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0801664837, Hardcover)A comprehensive reference, this book provides an up-to-date study of the most widely used biomaterials in implant surgery. Practical and accessible, it provides theoretical and technical background essential for orthopaedic surgeons to meet the needs of arthroplasty successfully - specifically to relieve pain, provide motion with stability, and to correct deformity. It discusses biomaterials and prosthetic design as they pertain to specific physiological and medical situations. Emphasis is placed on longevity, stress and the overall success rate of implants, with an evaluation of prosthetic devices covering bone structure, anatomy, bioengineering, biomaterials, tribology and factors affecting successful implantation. The book is intended for orthopaedic surgeons, biomaterial scientists and bioengineers.
