Current Status of Biomaterials: Use and Development
The rationale for including a talk on biomaterials in a conference on cardiovascular engineering is that engineers and materials scientists have over the years designed devices to replace various organs or perform certain functions in the body, and that the properties of the biomaterials as well as the design of the device influence the events that occur when such devices come into contact with blood and tissues.
