Abstract: The performance of materials in the body can be classified in many ways. Biomaterial is used to make devices to replace a part or a function of the body in a safe, reliable, economic, and physiologically acceptable manner [hench and erthridge, 1982]. A Variety of devices and materials presently used in the treatment of disease or injury include such commonplace items as sutures, needles, catheters, plates, tooth fillings, etc. Over the years, a biomaterial can be simply defined as a synthetic material used to replace part of a living system or to function in intimate contact with living tissue. The Clemson University Advisory Board for Biomaterials has formally defined a biomaterial to be “a systemically and pharmacologically inert substance designed for implantation within or incorporation with living systems”. It is also defined as “a nonviable material used in a medical device, intended to interact withbiological systems” [Black, 1992]. Other definitions have included “materials of ...
