Special Session 14
BIOMEDICAL IMPLANTS AND DEVICES (SS14)

The scope of this session is on biomedical implants and devices with the focus on materials and implantable device development/characterization and the host response to such implantable devices. Next generation biomedical implants are expected to revolutionize the future of medicine. This session provides an opportunity for the medical and scientific communities to be exposed to new materials and implant technologies. Researchers and engineers will be able to learn about the clinical and patient needs from the medical community perspectives.

In particular, we encourage researchers to submit abstracts within any of the following themes of this symposium:

  • Synthesis and characterization of novel biomaterials for prosthodontics
  • Surface biofunctionality: The interface between the implant and living cells and tissues
  • Corrosion, Tribocorrosion, and Degradation: Metallic implantable devices are susceptible to mechanical-electrochemical interactions that can result in accelerated corrosion. Ceramic and polymeric biomaterials are subjected to degradation. Both processes can result in dissemination of ions, by-products, and particulate debris in per prosthetic tissue.
  • Mechanical behavior of Implants:
  • Biomechanics of implants and mechanical interaction between the implant and the surrounding host material.
  • Biocompatibility of implantable devices 
  • Tissue regeneration: Advanced biomaterial approaches for promoting healing and restorative repair process.
  • Results of clinical evaluations of implants and devices.
  • New developments to dental implants to reduce peri-implantitis.
