ENGG 365 - Advanced Biomaterials
DescriptionThis course will focus on the interface between the host and implant with greater emphasis on the tissue reaction to metals, ceramics, polymers, bioceramics, and biopolymers than on the effect of the host environment on the materials. Ion release concerns, wear particle reactions, and the potential toxic properties of the salts of implant metals will be analyzed. The cells and cellular reactions available to the host will be evaluated in detail.
PrerequisitesENGS 165 and permission of instructor.
