Biotextiles as Medical Implants

Textiles play a vital role in the manufacture of various medical devices, including the replacement of diseased, injured or non-functioning organs within the body. Biotextiles as medical implants provides an invaluable single source of information on the main types of textile materials and products used for medical implants. The first part of the book focuses on polymers, fibers and textile technologies, and these chapters discuss the manufacture, sterilization, properties and types of biotextiles used for medical applications, including nanofibers, resorbable polymers and shaped biotextiles. The chapters in part two provide a comprehensive discussion of a range of different clinical applications of biotextiles, including surgical sutures, arterial prostheses, stent grafts, percutaneous heart valves and drug delivery systems. This book provides a concise review of the technologies, properties and types of biotextiles used as medical devices. In addition, it addresses the biological dimension of how to design devices for different clinical applications, providing an invaluable reference for biomedical engineers of medical textiles, quality control and risk assessment specialists, as well as managers of regulatory affairs. The subject matter will also be of interest to professionals within the healthcare system including surgeons, nurses, therapists, sourcing and purchasing agents, researchers and students in different disciplines. Provides an invaluable single source of information on the main types of textile materials and products used for medical implants Addresses the technologies used and discusses the manufacture, properties and types of biotextiles Examines applications of biotextiles as medical implants, including drug delivery systems and stent grafts and percutaneous heart valves

Hemorrhage is uncontrolled bleeding from a wound. Various studies indicate that hemorrhage is a major cause of ‘potentially preventable’ deaths in combat as well as civilian trauma. New methods and products for hemorrhage control are therefore a research priority to avoid potentially survivable deaths. A better understanding of the correlation between surface properties and their hemostatic potential (i.e. ability to form a blood clot) would result in an effective hemostatic wound dressing. This chapter describes the blood clotting mechanism

The chapter describes the regulatory framework applicable to medical devices, and specifically to biotextiles, principally in the United States, but also in the European Union. With the emergence of new technologies and materials, new forms of regulation have become necessary, and some of the traditional classifications no longer match present-day applications. Problems encountered by manufacturers with regard to premarket approval clearance and material supply quality standards assurance are discussed, as well as issues increasingly arising when one biotextile-based medical device

Implantation of a permanent or retrievable filter in the inferior vena cava (IVC) is becoming an increasingly popular option for patients at risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT). This chapter discusses the size and shaping parameters for IVC filters, and considers materials that are suitable. Complications and adverse incidents are also reviewed. The chapter concludes with specifications for an ‘ideal’ IVC filter and a look at a recent new design that has recently completed clinical trials.
