Description

PEEK Biomaterials Handbook, Second Edition explores the expansion in applications in PEEK, from spinal cages, to spinal rods, disc replacements, hip and knee joint replacements, dental applications, and trauma and sports medicine. As new PEEK formulations have been developed incorporating hydroxyapatite, additives to combat infection, and surface grafted polymers to improve lubrication, this book explores key topics that have made significant inroads in the past 5 years. Like the first edition, this updated handbook brings together experts from many different facets. Materials scientists and biomedical engineers, both in industry and academia, will find this to be a one-stop-shop of information.

Key Features

  • Presents a complete reference work covering PEEK, the leading polymer for spinal implants and a range of other biomedical applications
  • Covers a range of new formulations and applications, including in-depth coverage of the additive manufacturing of PEEK
  • Provides a vital source of supporting information for materials selection decisions and regulatory submissions

Readership

Plastics Engineers, Materials Engineers, Biomedical Engineers; Professionals in Spine and Orthopedic Industry and Academia, and orthopedic surgeons involved in material research and development; Teachers and Students of Biomaterials; Medical Device sector OEMs

About the Editors

Steven Kurtz Editor

Dr. Kurtz has been researching ultra-high molecular weight polyehtylene(UHMWPE) for use in orthopedics for over 10 years. He has published dozens of papers and several book chapters related to UHMWPE used in joint replacement. He has pioneered the development of new test methods for the material in orthopedics. Dr. Kurtz has authored national and international standards for medical upgrade UHMWPE.

As a principle engineer at Exponent, an international engineering and scientific consulting company, his research on UHMWPE is supported by several major orthopedic manufacturers. He has funding from the National Institutes for Health to stdy UHMWPE changes after implanatation in the body, as well as to develop new computer-based tools to predict the performance of new UHMWPE materials.

Dr. Kurtz is the Director of an orthopedic implant retrieval program in Philadelphia which is affiliated with Drexel University and Thomas Jefferson University. He teaches classes on the performance of orthopedic polymers (including UHMWPE) at Drexel, Temple, and Princeton Universities.
