  • Focuses on a variety of fabrication and processing aspects of the latest biomaterials
  • Discusses how scaffolds are used in tissue engineering
  • Examines the important role nanotechnology plays in the preparation of drugs, protein delivery, tissue engineering, cardiovascular biomaterials, hard tissue replacements, biosensors, and bio-MEMS
  • Describes common implant materials, such as hard tissue, blood contacting, and soft tissue
  • Explains how to improve the blood compatibility of biomaterials using a novel antithrombin–heparin covalent complex and how to modify the surface of biomaterials using plasma immersion ion implantation and deposition
  • Summary

    Focusing on a lucrative and increasingly important area of biomedicine, the Biomaterials Fabrication and Processing Handbook brings together various biomaterials production and processing aspects, including tissue engineering scaffold materials, drug delivery systems, nanobiomaterials, and biosensors. With contributions from renowned international experts and extensive reference lists in each chapter, the volume provides detailed, practical information to produce and use biomaterials.

    The different facets of biomaterials technology are split into four sections in the book—

    Part I

    The development of new materials and devices capable of interacting specifically with biological tissues and the preparation of scaffolds using materials with appropriate composition and structure

    Part II

    The necessary materials to create a drug delivery system capable of controlled release and the incorporation of drug reservoirs into implantable devices for sustained controlled release

    Part III

    The significant role nanotechnology plays in the biomedical and biotechnology fields

    Part IV

    More biomaterials, including synthetic and natural degradable polymeric biomaterials, electroactive polymers as smart materials, and biomaterials for gastrointestinal and cartilage repair and reconstruction
