Twenty-one peer reviewed papers give you the latest research and technical developments in the medical uses of stainless steels. This new publication covers a wide range of topics including corrosion, wear, biological response, radiopacity, and the high cost of medical products. New alloys are discussed as solutions to some issues by offering more biocompatible, higher quality, radiopaque, or low cost alternatives for orthopaedic implants and stents. Timely issues, such as injuries due to the interaction of implants and MRI examinations are also addressed.
