This book offers expert guidance on materials for total hip arthroplasty (THA), providing readers with quick access to well-organized summaries on biomaterials such as metals, ceramics, polymers, and composites. It also includes in-depth coverage of biocompatibility and implant problems such as necrosis, ulceration, high toxicity with metals, and allergic reactions. Coverage also emphasizes the mechanical properties of the materials used for prostheses applications, immunity to corrosion, enhanced biocompatibility, complete inertness to the body environment, and the high capacity to join with the bone and other tissues. Performance of Metals and Ceramics in Total Hip Arthroplasty is an essential reference for engineers and scientists specializing in prostheses design and manufacturing and orthopedic medical professionals. The book can also be used as a study guide for materials science and orthopedics students.
