Synopsis:

The second edition of Tissue Engineering Using Ceramics and Polymers comprehensively reviews the latest advances in this area rapidly evolving area of biomaterials science.

Part one considers the biomaterials used for tissue engineering. It introduces the properties and processing of bioactive ceramics and glasses, as well as polymeric biomaterials, particularly biodegradable polymer phase nanocomposites. Part two reviews the advances in techniques for processing, characterization, and modeling of materials. The topics covered range from nanoscale design in biomineralization strategies for bone tissue engineering to microscopy techniques for characterizing cells to materials for perfusion bioreactors. Further, carrier systems and biosensors in biomedical applications are considered. Finally, part three looks at the specific types of tissue and organ regeneration, with chapters concerning kidney, bladder, peripheral nerve, small intestine, skeletal muscle, cartilage, liver, and myocardial tissue engineering. Important developments in collagen-based tubular constructs, bioceramic nanoparticles, and multifunctional scaffolds for tissue engineering and drug delivery are also explained.

Tissue Engineering Using Ceramics and Polymers is a valuable reference tool for both academic researchers and scientists involved in biomaterials or tissue engineering, including the areas of bone and soft-tissue reconstruction and repair, and organ regeneration.

  • Second edition comprehensively examines the latest advances in ceramic and polymers in tissue engineering
  • Provides readers with general information on polymers and ceramics and looks at the processing, characterization, and modeling
  • Reviews the latest research and advances in tissue and organ regeneration using ceramics and polymers

From the Back Cover:

Research and developments in tissue engineering have led to strong growth in this area. An important part of this is the progress in the applications of biomaterials in tissue engineering, making it an area of great interest in the scientific community. This second edition is a comprehensive review of the advances in the uses of ceramics and polymers in this field.

Part I considers the biomaterials used for tissue engineering. It introduces the properties and processing of bioactive ceramics and glasses as well as polymeric biomaterials, particularly biodegradable polymer phase nanocomposites. Part II reviews the advances in techniques for processing, characterisation and modelling of materials. The topics covered range from nanoscale design in biomineralization for bone tissue engineering to microscopy techniques for characterising cells to materials for perfusion bioreactors. Further, carrier systems and biosensors in biomedical applications are considered. Finally, Part III looks at the specific types of tissue and organ regeneration, with chapters concerning kidney, bladder, peripheral nerve, small intestine, skeletal muscle, cartilage, liver and myocardial tissue engineering. Important developments in collagen-based tubular constructs, bioceramic nanoparticles and multifunctional scaffolds for tissue engineering and drug delivery are also explained.

Tissue engineering using ceramics and polymers is a valuable reference tool for both academic researchers and scientists involved in biological materials or tissue engineering, including in the areas of bone reconstruction and repair, orthopaedic surgery and soft-tissue surgery.

Professor Aldo R. Boccaccini is Professor of Biomaterials and head of the Institute of Biomaterials at the University of Erlangen, Germany. Professor Peter X. Ma is the Richard H Kingery Endowed Collegiate Professor at the University of Michigan, USA.
