Medical Applications of Titanium and Its Alloys: The Material and Biological Issues

Editor(s): S. A. Brown, J. E. Lemons

The first key reference source of its kind to feature current information on biomedical applications for titanium and beta-titanium alloys.

30 comprehensive peer-reviewed papers from leading experts in the field have been divided into 7 major categories:

Processing and TI 6Al 4V -- 3 papers address the effects of titanium manufacturing and processing, with a particular focus on TI 6Al 4V.

New Alloys -- The distinct properties and advantages of several new titanium alloys are discussed in 5 papers.

Porous Coatings -- 3 papers focus on issues pertaining to the mechanical properties of porous coatings.

Corrosion, Laboratory Studies -- The basic principles of corrosion of titanium and its alloys are explored in four papers.

Fretting and Wear Testing -- 5 papers present the results of laboratory studies on fretting corrosion and wear of titanium.

Biological Issues -- Various biological responses to titanium are presented in six papers.

Clinical Experience -- Clinical experience with such procedures as total hip and knee replacement are among the studies included in 4 papers.

Important reference volume for industry professionals involved with the research, development, marketing and management of surgical implant devices; government personnel in related research and regulatory capacities; metallurgy and materials science researchers, and university professors and researchers in the biomedical implantfield.
