KurzbeschreibungIntroduction to development strategies for implantable devices considering the interdependecies of biocompatibility, clinical and economical requirements ; discussion of the state of the art and actual trends in in orthopedics, sports medicine, traumatology and cardio-vascular surgery as well as regenerative medicine (tissue engineering).
LernzielBasic considerations in implant development
Concept of structural and surface biocompatiblity and its relevance for the design of implant and surgical technique
Understanding of conflicting factors, e.g. clinical need, economics and regulatory requirements
Concepts of tissue engineering, its strengths and weaknesses as current and future clinical solution
InhaltBiocompatibility as bionic guide line for the development of medical implants; implant and implantation related tissue reactions, biocompatible materials and material processing technologies; implant testing and regulatory procedures; discussion of the state of the art and actual trends in implant development in orthopedics, sports medicine, traumatology, spinal and cardio-vascular surgery; introduction to tissue engineering. Selected topics will be further illustrated by commented movies from surgeries.
