syn.: Absorbable Property of a material that degrades and dissolves in vivo. Its breakdown products are incorporated into normal physiologic and biochemical processes (e.g. bioabsorbable membranes or sutures).
Designed to assist or modify a biological activity.
Capacity of a material to fulfil its function with an appropriate response for a specific application from the receiving host. Quality of being accepted in a specific living environment without adverse or unwanted side effects. ——————————————————————————————————————— Biomaterials are non-living natural or synthetic materials that are used in contact with the living body and must therefore be biocompatible …
Progressive alteration or breakdown of a material in a biological environment.
Progressive alteration of a material in a biological environment.
Products derived from living tissues (animal or vegetable).
Scientific field that deals with the mechanical properties of any biomechanical device, device-tissue interface or the properties of tissues themselves.
Able to replicate or imitate a body structure (anatomy) and/or function (physiology).
Biomimetics or biomimicry is the imitation of the models, systems, and elements of nature for the purpose of solving complex human problems.
Bionics or biologically inspired engineering is the application of biological methods and systems found in nature to the study and design of engineering systems and modern technology.
Removal and examination of sample tissue for diagnosis.
Workable, non-resorbable glass ceramic out of the SiO2-Al2O3-MgO-Na2O-K2O-F-system by 3di GmbH. Crystal phase (ca. 60 %) with mainly phlogopit-crystals, embedded in a alumosilicateglassmatrix (ca. 40 %).
Acro.: BCS biphasic calcium sulfate dihydrate (CSD) The medical use of Calcium Sulfate has the longest history in the augmentation field, with over 120 years of use in the areas of Orthopedics, Plastics, Oncology and Maxillofacial medicine. The initial setting time is approximately 3-5 minutes. The material is completely resorbed within 4-10 weeks, coinciding with …
also: BCP Chemistry: Mixture of two phases, hydroxyapatite, HA, and β-tricalcium phosphate. It is a ceramic. Preparation involves the sintering causing the irreversible decomposition of calcium deficient apatites alternatively termed non-stoichiometric apatites or basic calcium phosphate, an example is: Ca10-δ(PO4)6-δ(HPO4)δ(OH)2-δ → (1-δ)Ca10(PO4)6(OH)2 + 3δCa3(PO4)2. It has been used in implants for petiapical tooth surgery, in orthopedic surgery. …
biventricular assist device While left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) are common treatment for patients with heart failure, a sizeable portion of LVAD recipients demonstrate clinically significant postoperative right ventricular failure and potentially require a biventricular assist device (BiVAD).
