Biomaterials, Artificial Organs and Tissue Engineering (Woodhead Publishing in Materials)by Larry L. Hench
Synopses & Reviews
This textbook and collection of illustrated CD lectures summarizes how maintaining quality of life in an aging population is being achieved by the development of specialty biomaterials, devices, artificial organs, and in vitro growth of human cells as tissue engineered constructs.
Following an introduction to living and man-made materials, the book discusses clinical applications of biomaterials and devices, summarizes the bioengineering principles and materials used in artificial organs, and presents the concepts and applications of tissue engineering. It concludes with the complex socio-economic factors involved in technology-based healthcare. Each chapter is supplemented with illustrated PowerPoint lectures and study questions on a CD.
