Course Description Aim of the course is to illustrate state of the art, open problems and advanced solutions related to the use of biomaterials (metals, polymers, ceramics and composites) for the manufacturing of biomedical implantable devices. The course considers the present biomaterials study and characterization techniques, and focuses on the role of biomaterials surface and interface with biological tissues, also considering the surface modification techniques. For any specific field of applications, reasons for success or failure of the device will be considered through case studies discussion, mainly analyzing the reasons connected with biomaterials. The today and the future biomaterials improvement trends will be presented. The first part of the course (5 cfu) concerns the orthopaedic, dental and maxillofacial fields, while the second part (5 cfu) points up the applications in the cardiovascular, ophthalmologic and reconstructive surgery fields.
