Bioceramics 13 contains the proceedings of the 13th International Symposium on Ceramics in Medicine organized by the “International Society for Ceramics in Medicine”. This society is an established forum for distinguished material scientists, bioengineers, molecular and cellular biologists, bone biologists, orthopedic surgeons, clinicians and manufacturers, to gather together and discuss the latest achievements in the field of bioceramic materials.
Bioceramic materials are in clinical use worldwide, and their clinical applications are dramatically increasing in many specialities, including orthopaedics, dentistry, ENT and craniofacial. The present volume is a collection of the latest research results in the field. The book also contains the proceedings of the special Symposium “Ceramic Materials in Orthopaedic Surgery: Clinical Results in the Year 2000” which reports the latest clinical results in several orthopaedic surgical procedures. In orthopaedic surgery, bioceramic materials are currently used in total joint replacement, bone substitution, and fracture fixation.
