Abstract:

West Germany is one of the leading countries in Europe for research in biomaterials. Researchers have developed a number of new techniques and methods utilizing a wide range of synthetic and natural materials for use in medicine. Exotic ceramics, metals, and plastics are being used both in animals and in humans for such things as tissue repair, wound coverings, drug delivery, and prostheses. The West German scientists, bioengineers, and clinicians are very aggressive in attacking new problems related to the use of biomaterials in therapy. Originator supplied keywords include Wound healing Implants.
