Cobalt-Base Alloys for Biomedical Applications

Editor(s): John A. Disegi, Richard L. Kennedy, Robert Pilliar

STP 1365 is a unique publication that focuses on the use of cobalt-base alloys in orthopaedic applications. It features 18 peer-reviewed papers written by world renowned biomedical experts, that focus on new materials research, advanced process developments, accelerated wear studies, and clinical information related to the use of Co-26Cr-6Mo for surgical implant applications.

STP 1365 covers the latest information to emerge in recent years on topics such as:

• Alloy Design

• Processing Variables

• Corrosion/Fretting Resistance

• Abrasion and Wear Characterization

• Implant Surface Modification

• Biological Response

• Clinical Performance.

This volume is a comprehensive resource for orthopaedic surgeons, biomedical researchers and engineers, product design engineers, quality control engineers, product metallurgists and managers, implant device manufacturers, and academics.
