Synopsis:

Biocompatibility - basic terms and definitions. Biometarials - survey, use in medicine. Properties and structure of materials and their relation with the living human system. Methods of assessment of structure and composition of materials. Mechanical properties of biomaterials : metals, ceramics, plastics, carbon, composites. Immune system, tests of biocompatibility, fundamentals of the bond of the living tissue with the material; sterilization. Morphology, roughness and tribological properties of surfaces of biomaterials; effect of chemical properties of the surfaces of biomaterials and corrosion resistance on biocompatibility. Surface treatment - creation and application of thin layers and coatings. Examples of the development of a biocompatible material for the shank of an endo replacement (composite PEEK+C fibres), heart pump (TiN layer), preparation and properties of TiNi with plasma spray.
