Materials for Medical Devices
Volume 23 focuses on the use of materials in medical and dental applications, examining materials selection, design, and manufacturing in light of the principles of biocompatibility and the chemical and mechanical interactions that affect it. It provides detailed information on chemical and mechanically assisted corrosion, corrosion fatigue, and potential complications stemming from corrosion byproducts. It analyzes biotribology and wear, bonding osteogenesis, and bioresorption in which implanted materials are eventually replaced by tissue or bone. The volume includes property, performance, and processing data on titanium, stainless steels, cobalt-base alloys, noble and precious metals, amalgams, ceramics and glasses, polymers, and shape memory alloys. It also contains information on testing, evaluation, surface characterization, and failure analysis, and provides examples of material-related and mechanical-based failures along with lessons learned.
