Biomedical Engineering II: Recent Developments covers some progress made in biochemical engineering, which have some useful application in dentistry, medical instrumentation, and orthopedics. The book provides a detailed testing and analysis of the use of hydroxylapatite as an effective substance for mandibular augmentation of the atrophic ridge. An in-depth report about the technique called the tendon reroute surgery is also given.
The book includes a discussion on cardiology hemodynamics, which is about the determination of blood flow by monitoring the speed of blood cell. Another topic covered is the effects of stresses on the vertebral body. A separate section of the book is focused on the modeling and creation of simulation to test the movement of transmicrovascular fluid and protein exchanges. Some topics in the field of bioelectricity, biomechanics, and biocontrol systems are thoroughly discussed. The text will be a useful tool for dentists, orthopedics, doctors, and people in the field of medical physiology.
