Biomaterials

Biomaterials are synthetic materials which can be used to replace damaged part or function in human body. Biomaterials can be derived as materials which are compatible with the human body and can be implanted into human body to replace a diseased part or abnormal function. Application of biomaterials dated back to 1900s where Bone plates were introduced to aid in the fixation of fractured bones. Implants made of Vanadium were used because of its good mechanical properties. Vanadium caused adverse effects in the body due to its rapid corrosion. Introduction of Stain less steels fixed the problem of corrosion. Besides Stainless steels Chromium and Cobalt alloys were also used as Implants because of their properties. Polymers are also can be used as biomaterials because of their excellent mechanical properties and good corrosion resistance. Polymers are also using now as biomaterials for different applications.
