The series Advances in Biomaterials provides a vehicle for the publication of proceedings of meetings on biomaterials which will grow into a valuable reference library. Biomaterials is that branch of biomedical engineering concerned with the materials aspects of medical devices. Any material, metal, ceramic, plastic or organic, brought into contact with the fluids, cells and tissues of the living body comes within the domain of biomaterials science. Included are surgical implant and dental materials, dressings, orthotics, prosthetics materials, and those used in extracorporeal circulation devices. Biomaterials scientists are concerned with the physical and chemical properties of materials and their suitability for a particular device. They are concerned with how these properties are altered by the biological environment and how the materials may affect the body. The subject spans the physical and life sciences.
