Abstract

Polymeric biomaterials have found increasing applications in implantable prostheses to replace damaged tissues and body parts or supplement their defective functions. In this chapter, we describe the principal biological and mechanical challenges in the selection of suitable polymers for the design of prosthetic devices. We also discuss the use of polymeric biomaterials in existing cardiovascular, orthopedic, ophthalmologic, and dental prostheses and highlight emerging directions in the development of new polymers for future applications.
