Bioresorbable materials could be employed to provide significant advances in drug delivery systems and medical implants. The rate of material degradation is critical to performance of both implants and the controlled release of drugs; Degradation Rate of Bioresorbable Materials: Prediction and Evaluation Addresses the practicalities of this subject in detail. The first section provides an overview of bioresorbable materials and the biological environment. Degradation mechanisms are reviewed in the second group of chapters in the book, followed by bioresorption test methods in the third part. The fourth section discusses factors influencing bioresorption; finally, clinical applications are reviewed.
