Synopsis:

Generalized considerations: biocompatibility - definitions and issues. Introduction to the biological environment. Material response: function and degradation of materials in vitro and in vivo. Mechanics of materials: deformation and failure. Swelling and leaching of plastics; corrosion and dissolution of metals. Tribology of biomaterials: friction and wear. Properties of implant materials. Host response: reaction of biological molecules with biomaterial surfaces. Biological effects of implants. The inflamatory process; coagulation and hemolysis; alergic foreign-body response, chemical and foreign body carcinogenesis; adaptation. Implant materials: clinical performance. Methods of tests for biological performance. In vitro test methods. In vivo implant models. Qualification of implant materials. Standardization and regulation of implant materials. Design and selection of implant materials.
