Biomaterials in Arthroplasty
Biomaterials are one of the growing developmental technology in last 50 years which has a major role in the medical implants. These biomaterials are engineered artificial substances those gets interacted with the biological system to regain or replace the bodily function. The various applications of biomaterials in Orthopedics are joint replacements, bone plates, bone cement, artificial ligaments and tendons. The most important aspect of the biomaterials in the living system is its biocompatibility of the material in either inducing or rejecting the immune response. Other than compatibility, the natures of material like bioactive response, biodegradable and bioinert also has a significant role in material selection.
