Bone Substitute Biomaterials
Bone substitute biomaterials are a fundamental part of the biomaterials and biomedical sector and this area has benefitted from many recent technological developments. Recent research has particularly focussed on minimising failure rates and the need for further surgery, which can be achieved in particular through osseointegration and regeneration. The first section of this book provides readers with the principles of bone substitute biomaterials whilst the final section reviews biomaterials for bone regeneration.
Bone substitute biomaterials provides a detailed review of this important area, and will be a helpful resource for scientists and engineers in both academia and the biomedical industry. It should be of particular interest to those working in orthopaedics and dentistry.
