About this item

Metallic Foam Bone: Processing, Modification and Characterization and Properties examines the use of porous metals as novel bone replacement materials. With a strong focus on materials science and clinical applications, the book also examines the modification of metals to ensure their biocompatibility and efficacy in vivo.

Initial chapters discuss processing and production methods of metals for tissue engineering and biomedical applications that are followed by topics on practical applications in orthopedics and dentistry. Finally, the book addresses the surface science of metallic foam and how it can be tailored for medical applications.

This book is a valuable resource for materials scientists, biomedical engineers, and clinicians with an interest in innovative biomaterials for orthopedic and bone restoration.

  • Introduces biomaterials researchers to a promising, rapidly developing technology for replacing hard tissue
  • Increases familiarity with a range of technologies, enabling materials scientists and engineers to improve the material properties of porous metals
  • Explores the clinical applications of metal foams in orthopedics and dentistry
