Biomedical Hydrogels: Biochemistry, Manufacture and Medical Applications

by

Biomedical Hydrogels: Biochemistry, Manufacture and Medical Applications Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hydrogels are very important for biomedical applications because they can be chemically manipulated to alter and control the hydrogel’s interaction with cells and tissues. Their flexibility and high water content is similar to that of natural tissue, making them extremely suitable for biomaterials applications. "Biomedical hydrogels" explores the diverse range and use of hydrogels, focusing on processing methods and novel applications in the field of implants and prostheses.

Part one of this book concentrates on the processing of hydrogels, covering hydrogel swelling behaviour, superabsorbent cellulose-based hydrogels and regulation of novel hydrogel products, as well as chapters focusing on the structure and properties of hydrogels and different fabrication technologies. Part two covers existing and novel applications of hydrogels, including chapters on spinal disc and cartilage replacement implants, hydrogels for ophthalmic prostheses and hydrogels for wound healing applications.  The last chapter addresses the role of hydrogels in imaging implants in situ.

Book News Annotation:

For biomedical research scientists, engineers, and research clinicians, among others, this volume offers a convenient and up-to-date reference to an important category of materials. Coverage encompasses hydrogel swelling behavior and its biomedical applications, superabsorbent cellulose-based hydrogels, synthesis, and control of structure and properties, processing and fabrication technologies, and regulation of products (including post-market requirements, future trends, and sources of advice). Applications discussed include spinal disc implants, intraocular lenses, cartilage replacement implants, and wound healing systems. The final chapter is on imaging hydrogel implants in situ. Editor Rimmer (polymer and biomaterials chemistry, Sheffield U., UK) has assembled focused chapters from contributors in Europe, the US, and Asia.

Synopsis:

Hydrogels are a type of polymer which, through a range of chemistries, can be manipulated to alter and control the hydrogels interactions with cells and tissues. Due to their significant water content, hydrogels possess a degree of flexibility similar to natural tissue. This book explores the diverse range and use of hydrogels, focusing on processing methods and novel applications. Chapters in Part 1 review methods of synthesizing hydrogels, including chapters on hydrogel swelling and controlling the structure and properties of hydrogels. The final group of chapters analyzes applications such as spinal implants and ophthalmic prostheses.
