ISBNs 9783038421283 9783038421276

Colección: Directory of Open Access Books

Resumen (en inglés): The mechanical behavior of biomedical materials and biological tissues are important for their proper function. This holds true, not only for biomaterials and tissues whose main function is structural such as skeletal tissues and their synthetic substitutes, but also for other tissues and biomaterials. Moreover, there is an intimate relationship between mechanics and biology at different spatial and temporal scales. It is therefore important to study the mechanical behavior of both synthetic and living biomaterials. This Special Issue aims to serve as a forum for communicating the latest findings and trends in the study of the mechanical behavior of biomedical materials. The materials and topics of interest are broad and include many different aspects including the ones covered by the keywords presented below.

Natural and Synthetic Biomedical Polymers

 

Elsevier, 2014.

ISBNs 9780123969835

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés):

Polymers are important and attractive biomaterials for researchers and clinical applications due to the ease of tailoring their chemical, physical and biological properties for target devices. Due to this versatility they are rapidly replacing other classes of biomaterials such as ceramics or metals. As a result, the demand for biomedical polymers has grown exponentially and supports a diverse and highly monetized research community. Currently worth $1.2bn in 2009 (up from $650m in 2000), biomedical polymers are expected to achieve a CAGR of 9.8% until 2015, supporting a current research community of approximately 28,000+.

Summarizing the main advances in biopolymer development of the last decades, this work systematically covers both the physical science and biomedical engineering of the multidisciplinary field. Coverage extends across synthesis, characterization, design consideration and biomedical applications. The work supports scientists researching the formulation of novel polymers with desirable physical, chemical, biological, biomechanical and degradation properties for specific targeted biomedical applications.

  • Combines chemistry, biology and engineering for expert and appropriate integration of design and engineering of polymeric biomaterials
  • Physical, chemical, biological, biomechanical and degradation properties alongside currently deployed clinical applications of specific biomaterials aids use as single source reference on field.
  • 15+ case studies provides in-depth analysis of currently used polymeric biomaterials, aiding design considerations for the future

Ocular Tissue Engineering

Vol. Special Issue

 

MDPI AG - Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute, 2016.

Título de la serie/colección: Journal of Functional Biomaterials. ISSN 2079-4983,

ISBNs 9783038422013 9783038422020

Colección: Directory of Open Access Books

Resumen (en inglés): Tissue engineering emerged back in the 1990s as a new concept to overcome the problem of tissue and organ failure. Over recent decades, there has been incredible progress towards the regeneration of tissues such as bone, heart valves, cartilage, cornea, and retina. In terms of ocular tissue engineering, despite the scientific and strategic incentive for reconstructing ocular tissues, there is also a tremendous need for novel therapeutic options in treating numerous eye diseases related to tissue failure. The aim of this Special Issue is to discuss tissue engineering applications of ocular tissues including but not limited to cornea, retina, and lenses. Both research and review articles focusing on ocular diseases and tissue engineering applications are welcome.
