Bioactive Glasses: Materials, Properties and Applications (Woodhead Publishing in Materials) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Due to their biocompatibility and bioactivity, bioactive glasses are used as highly effective implant materials throughout the human body to replace or repair damaged tissue. As a result, they have been in continuous use since shortly after their invention in the late 1960s and are the subject of extensive research worldwide.

Bioactive glasses provides readers with a detailed review of the current status of this unique material, its properties, technologies and applications. Chapters in part one deals with the materials and mechanical properties of bioactive glass, examining topics such as surface modification and cell interaction. Part two is focussed on the applications of bioactive glasses, covering their uses in wound healing, maxillofacial surgery and bone tissue engineering, among other topics.

Synopsis:

Due to their biocompatibility and bioactivity, bioactive glasses are used extensively as implant materials throughout the human body to replace or repair damaged tissue. Once in vivo, this man-made material gradually transforms to mimic natural bone. Consequently, this material has been used extensively since its invention in the 60’s and is widely researched throughout the world. This book provides readers with a comprehensive review of the current status of this unique material, applications, technologies and future trends.
