Interactions of Bone with Orthopedic Implants and Possible Failures (Paperback)
Interactions of Bone with Orthopedic Implants and Possible Failures focuses on the mechanical and biological issues that may cause failure of the implant-bone construct. The book provides discussions on the effects of the design, process, surface and other engineering parameters of implants and their interaction with bone tissue. For implant designers, it is highly crucial to know the final effects of what they are designing or aiming to design, along with performance parameters. It is also crucial for orthopedic surgeons to be familiar with the background of the design and process parameters of the implant they will insert in a patient's body.
With the understanding brought forth in this book, surgeons can have better implant options and implant designers can create and develop new implant designs. This book can also help biomechanical and mechanical engineers who are normally dealing with testing and analysis of orthopedic implants examine the biomechanical behavior of the implants and their interaction with bone tissue.
