Given the rapid development and use of polymers within the medicine, the durability and reliability of biomaterials and devices is an area of critical importance to the biomedical industry. Failure and lifetime analysis has always been a particular subject of interest for materials scientists and this book seeks to provide comprehensive information on the performance, improvement and common failures of this important group of materials. Part 1 provides an introduction to medical polymers with methods to analyse and model polymer durability. Chapters in part 2 discuss the fabrication, properties and performance of medical polymers and how medical polymers can be affected by environmental factors.
