Advanced Polymers in Medicine by Francesco Puoci

By Francesco Puoci

The ebook offers an updated evaluation of the varied clinical purposes of complicated polymers. The booklet opens through providing very important history info on polymer chemistry and physicochemical characterization of polymers. This serves as crucial clinical aid for the next chapters, every one of that's dedicated to the purposes of polymers in a selected scientific strong point. The assurance is large, encompassing orthopedics, ophthalmology, tissue engineering, surgical procedure, dentistry, oncology, drug supply, nephrology, wound dressing and therapeutic, and cardiology. the improvement of polymers that improve the biocompatibility of blood-contacting scientific units and the incorporation of polymers inside biosensors also are addressed. This e-book is a superb consultant to the hot advances in polymeric biomaterials and bridges the distance among the study literature and traditional textbooks at the functions of polymers in medicine.

Ambulatory Impedance Cardiography: The Systems and their Applications

”Ambulatory Impedance Cardiography” offers the reader the required actual history of impedance cardiography (ICG) and presently to be had platforms for hemodynamics holter tracking. It compares ambulatory ICG and different clinically permitted tools via an up-to-date cutting-edge. The e-book is split in four components.

Cardiovascular Fluid Mechanics

The booklet provides the cutting-edge within the interdisciplinary box of fluid mechanics utilized to cardiovascular modelling. it truly is neighter a monograph nor a suite of analysis papers, particularly a longer evaluate within the box. it truly is prepared in four clinical chapters each one offering completely the method of a number one learn crew; extra chapters ready by way of biomedical scientists current the subject through the utilized point of view.

An Introduction to Rehabilitation Engineering

Answering the frequent call for for an introductory publication on rehabilitation engineering (RE), Dr. Rory A. Cooper, a unusual RE authority, and his esteemed colleagues current An advent to Rehabilitation Engineering. This source introduces the basics and purposes of RE and assistive applied sciences (ATs).

Sample text

Arabinogalactan Arabinogalactan (AG) is a highly branched natural polysaccharide comprised of arabinose and galactose monosaccharides present in furanose configuration. This biopolymer is obtained from both plant (Larix occidentalis) and microbial origin. The arabinan portion of the polymer is a complex branched structure possessing α-(1–3), α-(1–5), and β-(1–2) glycosidic linkages, usually capped with mycolic acids. The microbial AG is a major structural component of the mycobacterial cell wall.

The reported gelation characteristics of this mixture are a result of a combination of both thermal and ion responsiveness due to a synergistic interaction between these two polymers [39]. There have also been efforts to develop nanocarrier based anti-cancer drug delivery systems. Fabricated pectin nanocarriers loaded with oxaliplatin have been investigated as a potential targeted anticancer-drug therapy by incorporating super paramagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPIONs) [40]. Pectin has also been explored as a carrier to develop an intra gastric floating drug delivery system using calcium pectinate gel (CaPG) beads containing carbonate salts.
