Stainless Steels for Medical and Surgical Applications

Editor(s): Gary L. Winters, Michael J Nutt

Twenty-one peer reviewed papers give you the latest research and technical developments in the medical uses of stainless steels. It covers a wide range of topics, including corrosion, wear, biological response, radiopacity, and the high cost of medical products. New alloys are discussed as solutions to some issues by offering more biocompatible, higher quality, radiopaque, or low cost alternatives for orthopaedic implants and stents. Several corrosion papers address this key concern for all medical devices, while others offer creative options for this field. Timely issues, such as injuries due to the interaction of implants and MRI examinations are also addressed.

Audience: This new publication is a valuable resource for materials scientists and engineers, medical device development engineers, medical doctors and surgeons, metallurgists; medical researchers, medical device R&D managers, and stainless steel manufacturing engineers.
