Given the widespread use of polymers in medical devices, the durability and reliability of this material is an area of critical importance. The editors and contributors review the performance of both bioresorbable and non-bioresorbable medical polymers in this book.
Part one provides a review of the types and properties of bioresorbable medical polymers. Chapters discuss the effect of molecular structure on properties, the processing of bioresorbable and other polymers for medical applications, transport phenomena and the degradation of bioresorbable medical polymers and synthetic bioresorbable polymers and their use in orthopaedic tissue regeneration. Part two goes on to explore the durability and reliability of non-bioresorbable medical polymers, wear processes in polymer implants and ageing processes of biomedical polymers in the body and concludes with an investigation into manufacturing defects and the failure of synthetic polymeric medical devices.
