The proceedings of the August 2009 conference focuses on medical materials used in actual medical devices and the complex interactions at play between device materials and the biological environment. The 46 papers investigate fabrication processes, fatigue, corrosion, tissue biocompatibility, cell-surface interactions, regulatory issues, and shape memory alloys. Topics include ultrasonic cleaning-induced failures, palladium-based alloys, nitinol wires, strength improvement of titanium alloys, inhibiting microbial biofilm formation with brominated furanones, and biodegradable adjunctive therapy for extremity wound infection reduction. Black and white photographs are provided, but no subject index.
