about this item

Millions of patients worldwide benefit from implantable biomedical devices, such as fracture fixations, prosthetic joints, pacemakers, vascular grafts, dental implants, and stents. However, biomaterial-associated infection is a common postimplantation complication. This reference focuses on (antibacterial) silver nanoparticles for implantable materials and the chemical and molecular mechanisms involved in silver toxicology. It also discusses the combination of silver nanoparticles and other functional materials, techniques for evaluating antibacterial actions and safety of silver nanoparticles, and the clinical requirements for antibacterial medical devices.
