Book description

Written by more than 400 subject experts representing diverse academic and applied domains, this multidisciplinary resource surveys the vanguard of biomaterials and biomedical engineering technologies utilizing biomaterials that lead to quality-of-life improvements. Building on traditional engineering principles, it serves to bridge advances in materials science, life sciences, nanotechnology, and cell biology to innovations in solving medical problems with applications in tissue engineering, prosthetics, drug delivery, biosensors, and medical devices.

In nearly 300 entries, this four-volume Encyclopedia of Biomaterials and Biomedical Engineering, Second Edition covers:

  • essential topics integral to tissue engineering research: bioreactors, scaffolding materials and fabrication, tissue mechanics, cellular interaction, and development of major tissues and organs being attempted by researchers worldwide
  • artificial lungs and muscles, bio-artificial livers, and corneal, dental, inner ear, and total hip implants
  • tissue engineering of blood vessels, heart valves, ligaments, microvascular networks, skeletal muscle, and skin
  • bone remodeling, bone cement, and bioabsorbable bone plates and screws
  • controlled drug delivery, insulin delivery, and transdermal and ocular implant-based drug delivery
  • endovascular stent grafts, vascular grafts, and xenografts
  • 3-D medical imaging, electrical impedance imaging, and intravascular ultrasound
  • biomedical, protein adsorption, and in vivo cardiovascular modeling
  • polymer foams, biofunctional and conductive polymers, and electroactive polymeric materials
  • blood?material interactions, the bone?implant interface, host reactions, and foreign body responses
  • and much more
