Bioceramics and their clinical applications

Description: Bioceramics are potentially suitable for a wide range of important applications within the medical device industry. Bioceramics and their clinical applications provides an authoritative review of this highly active area of research, written by leading academics from around the world. Chapters in the first section of the book discuss issues of significance to a range of bioceramics, such as their structure, mechanical properties and biological interactions. The second part reviews the fabrication, microstructure and properties of specific bioceramics and glasses, concentrating on the most promising materials. The final group of chapters reviews the clinical applications of bioceramics.

Contents: Part 1 Fundamentals of bioceramics: The structure and mechanical properties of bone - Fabrication processes for bioceramics - The microstructure of bioceramics and its analysis - The mechanical properties of bioceramics - The design of ceramics for joint replacement - Cellular response to bioactive ceramics - In vitro evaluation of bone bioactivity - Osteoconduction and its evaluation - Osteoinduction and its evaluation. Part 2 Types of bioceramics: Alumina ceramics - Zirconia ceramics - Bioactive glasses - Bioactive glass-ceramics - Calcium sulphate - Tricalcium phosphate-based ceramics - Hydroxyapatite - Tricalcium phosphate/hydroxyapatite biphasic ceramics - Si-substituted hydroxyapatite - Calcium phosphate cement - Calcium phosphate coatings - Titania-based materials - Ceramic-polymer composites - Dental ceramics - Dental glass-ceramics. Part 3 Clinical applications of bioceramics: Clinical application of bioactive glasses - Clinical application of bioactive glass-ceramics - Clinical application of hydroxyapatite - Clinical applications of alumina ceramics in joint replacement - Clinical applications of ceramics/polyethylene in joint replacement - Tissue engineering using bioceramics.
