... artificial heart valves. The corrosion of these bare materials or the erosion of the coating and subsequent corrosion of the exposed surfaces are to be critically considered before employing the material or design, because any catastrophic failure of the devices can result in death of the patient. Hence...

... and environments. Such analyses are crucial for reliable use of bioceramics. For example, artificial prostheses such as pyrolytic-carbon heart-valve devices must be designed for fatigue lives longer than patient life; because the human heart typically beats 38 million times each year, fatigue life must exceed 1...
