In English, many things are named after a particular country – but have you ever wondered what those things are called in those countries?
- Surface treatments texture the biocompatible material to resemble natural skin.
- A research team at Virginia Tech (Blacksburg, VA) has created biocompatible adhesives that could speed the process of mending tissue.
- An example is collagen, for the biocompatible soft-tissue implants used to plump wrinkles.
- Soft, supple, and biocompatible, the Polyzen material successfully prevents tissue ingrowth and offers additional benefits.
- This is first time, he says, that an artificial kidney fashioned from cells and biocompatible materials has produced what seems to be urine.
- Coatings are also used to protect patients from contact with surgical items or implanted devices that may not be biocompatible.
- He adds that the technology can benefit ‘any device that needs to be implanted in the body and requires a biocompatible leak-tight seal that will last for years.’
- In recent years, PIP has helped develop titanium-coated breast implants, which it says makes the implants more biocompatible.
- It soon became apparent, however, that the biocompatible material with strength, density, and porosity properties similar to natural bone may have other applications.
- Materials that are more biocompatible, such as cobalt chromium or titanium alloys, are used for permanent implants.
- They must be strong, reliable, tissue biocompatible, and able to retain a sharp cutting edge.
- Whether it is possible to accomplish these objectives using biocompatible, biodegradable, surface-active formulations remains to be determined.
- The electronic array must be robust enough to withstand damage from the implant procedure and be biocompatible - able to withstand the physiological conditions in the eye.
- It recently developed titanium-coated implants, which PIP claims are more biocompatible than uncoated counterparts.
- As with any material implanted into the body, the coating needed to be biocompatible.
- The implantable materials are biocompatible, non-biodegradable implants which are designed for stabilization in soft tissue through the ingrowth of fibrous tissue after implantation.
- If clarity is not required, the normal practice is to add a biocompatible colorant to the raw material, typically 1 to 2% by weight.
- Implants are biocompatible - meaning they're designed to be accepted by your body - and they're made to resist corrosion, degradation and wear.
- Materials include biocompatible alloys such as titanium and specialty stainless steels.
- A possible attraction of protein-like materials for medical applications is that they would be biocompatible and biodegradable.
