Overview

Virtually every wound, whether surgical or traumatic, needs to be closed to promote wound healing and prevent infection. Increasingly sophisticated and effective materials for the crucial surgical treatment of wound closure are being developed continuously. Keep up with the most recent research progress and future trends in this complex and rapidly changing field with Wound Closure Biomaterial and Devices. This state-of-the-art book provides detailed information and critical discussions on:
ï Sutures and other wound closure devices, including absorbable sutures and their biodegradation properties
ï The chemistry, physics, mechanics, biology, and biomaterials science of suture materials
ï Tissue adhesive, ligating clips, and staplers
ï The biomechanics and pathology of wound healing
ï Future trends and new emerging materials in the treatment of wound closure
