Color Atlas of Tissue Response to Biomaterials
This atlas is a practical guide to the compatibility of biomaterials with different tissues in the human body.
Beginning with the preparation of tissues with implants for microscopy, the following chapters describe implants in soft tissue, implants in bone, preclinical evaluation of biomaterials and medical devices, and retrieved clinical implants.
In depth discussion on identifying cells in tissues and assessing responses to different biomaterials, assists with fundamental evaluation of whether a material is compatible with the tissues.
The book is highly illustrated with photomicrographs and diagrams, providing pathologists with step by step sequences of events that occur in tissues following implantation of different types of material.
