Item description for An Introduction to Bioceramics (Advanced Series in Bioceramics, Vol 1) by Larry L. Hench...

Ceramic materials that are specially developed for use as medical and dental implants are termed bioceramics. They include alumina and zirconia, bioactive glasses, glass-ceramics, coatings and composites, hydroxyapatite and resorbable calcium phosphates, and radiotherapy glasses. This is the first textbook in a field which is growing rapidly in clinical applications including orthopedics, otolaryngology, maxillo-facial and plastic surgery, oral surgery, periodontology, and tumor therapy. Fourteen chapters, written by world experts, describe the processing, compositions, properties, surface chemistry, tissue response, and clinical applications. There are also chapters on characterization and quality assurance testing, and the procedures that must be followed to satisfy regulatory requirements. A forecast of the future needs of the field and Appendices that summarize the relevant standards and test methods complete this unique book. The purpose of the book is to summarize and synthesize the very large and disparate body of literature in the field. Thus, it is easy to use as a textbook for an undergraduate or first year graduate course, or short industrial course, or as a reference source.

Reviews - What do customers think about An Introduction to Bioceramics (Advanced Series in Bioceramics, Vol 1)?

Not Recommended  Apr 1, 2000
This book is disjointed and research oriented, more like the proceedings of a conference than a text book. It also has a very biased feel and is somewhat of an advertisement for the editors' invention, Bioglass(R). My resources would have been better spent conducting a thorough search of the technical journal literature.
