Reviews

"After an introduction to the topography of biotribocorrosion, the book is divided into three parts covering tribocorrosion mechanisms, the biological effects of tribocorrosion processes, and the correlation of in vitro and in vivo data. These areas are covered flawlessly… Joint replacement surgeons who are truly interested in what happens (and what potentially may happen) in vivo to implants they use will not be able to put this book down. It is an essential addition to academic orthopedic surgical and research libraries."--Doody.com, December 6, 2013
