A Review on Biomaterials : Scope , Applications & Human Anatomy Significance

  title={A Review on Biomaterials : Scope , Applications \& Human Anatomy Significance},
  author={Nitesh R. Patel and P. P. Gohil},
Biomaterials in the form of implants (sutures, bone plates, joint replacements, etc.) and medical devices (pacemakers, artificial hearts, blood tubes, etc.) are widely used to replace and/or restore the function of traumatized or degenerated tissues or organs, and thus improve the quality of life of the patients. The first and foremost requirement for the choice of the biomaterial is its acceptability by the human body. A biomaterial used for implant should possess some important properties in…
