Special Topic Issue: Pathobiology 2013, Vol. 80, No. 4
Key topics on biomaterials in clinical surgery
This special issue of Pathobiology highlights novel biomaterials and their clinical use in surgery. As populations grow and expand, the need for replacement tissues and organs is constantly increasing and requires novel engineering strategies. Collective progress in the development of innovative materials and scaffolds capable of modulating the cellular responses required for tissue repair can only be achieved via collaborative interactions between investigators in the diverse Life Sciences disciplines.
Application of Novel Biomaterials in Clinical Surgery includes chapters on in vivo tissue engineering, the bioartificial pancreas, the repair of tendon and ligament injuries and resorbable osteosysnthesis materials in craniomaxilliofacieal surgery. Its main goal is to summarize the key messages of novel biomaterials and their application in clinical surgery.
The publication is of interest to academic surgeons of any field, as it highlights the integration of tissue-engineered materials into clinical practice.
