Revised, expanded, and updated, Orthopaedic Biomaterials in Research and Practice, Second Edition introduces materials science and applies it to medical research and treatment. This book incorporates math and engineering, which makes it accessible to trainees and others working in the industry who are lacking primary mathematical and engineering training.
What’s New in the Second Edition:
In the second edition, the new material includes regeneration, hybrid and replant materials, tissue engineering, electrical stimulation for tissue growth and repair, modeling of material behavior in service, and long-term function of materials in patients. It explores tools for non-destructive and destructive analysis of explanted devices, and provides updates on all material classes including shape memory and degradable alloys, fracture-resistant ceramics, and bioabsorbable polymers. It provides a compendium for implant host response including in-depth discussion of metallosis and hypersensitive response. It also adds new case studies, worked problems, and a complete self-evaluation test with annotated answers.
Orthopaedic Biomaterials in Research and Practice, Second Edition serves as a textbook fororthopaedic residents. It can also serve as a review for the Orthopaedists In-Training Examination (OITE), the Orthopaedic Self-Assessment Examination, or the Orthopaedic Board Examination.
"This book is designed to serve three primary functions. First, it can serve as a guide for a course of lectures to residents. Second, it can serve as a review for the various orthopedic surgical exams. And third, it serves as a survey of biomaterial aspects of orthopedic surgery. The book certainly satisfies these worthy objectives. … The authors have been recognized as authorities in the field of biomaterials for many years. … This is an excellent and stimulating treatise for academic orthopedic surgeons interested and concerned about materials being implanted in their patients and the expected outcomes. It makes a reader feel like an engineer and scientist as well as a surgeon. This updated second edition is truly essential to the academic orthopedic surgical library. … Weighted numerical score: 94 - 4 Stars."
—Samuel J. Chmell, MD, University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine, USA, from Doody’s Book ReviewsTM
"This book fills an important need for the orthopaedic community, from the resident and fellow, to the novice or seasoned orthopaedic surgeon. This book is also useful for engineers and others interested in Basic and applied musculoskeletal research and development. The book is written in a straightforward, but comprehensive manner with practical clinical examples, and questions and answers to test the reader’s understanding of the concepts."
––Stuart Goodman, Stanford University, California, USA
"This excellent, engaging, very well written and illustrated textbook presents a modern and up to date overview of orthopaedic biomaterials of relevance to clinical applications. It should be mandatory reading for anyone engaged in orthopaedic research and/or clinical practice."
––Professor Tony Miles, Director, Centre for Orthopaedic Biomechanics, University of Bath, UK
"This book is the only volume currently available in orthopaedic biomaterials that provides information on what has been achieved in the past and what needs to be accomplished for the future. It deserves to be required reading for young bioengineers, for orthopaedic trainees and for all of those interested in the application of materials technology to the practice of orthopaedic surgery."
