Biomedical Engineers and Artificial Organs - Frontiers of Biomedical Engineering - W Mark Saltzman - Lecture 25 of 25 - Video-lecture

Video-lecture, Biomedical Engineering

Description: In this final lecture, Professor Saltzman talks about artificial organs, with a stress on synthetic biomaterials. First, the body's responses (immunological and scar healing responses) to foreign materials are introduced. This leads to discussion of different types of polymer/plastic materials (i.e., Dacron and GORE-TEX) and their properties.
