This book presents both an overview and forward assessment of medical device materials and test methods. Highlighting the complex problem of host responses and related issues which may restrict the accuracy and reliability of existing test methodology, the book provides an unbiased appraisal of the requirements for biocompatibility and the approaches that have been developed to evaluate it.
