Pressure-related chronic wounds are an important health concern that affects millions of patients and accumulates billions in annual costs. These wounds may occur when soft tissues are mechanically compressed between bony prominences and a supporting surface. This book gives a complete and quantitative explanation of the mechanobiology which causes chronic wounds. The reviews give an overall picture on all length scales of the phenomenon, starting from musculoskeletal biomechanics to the modeling of soft tissues and their interaction with bones. At the microscopic levels, it thoroughly reviews experiments and modeling of cellular forces and molecular processes that occur during injury and healing, including the integrity of living cells subjected to sustained mechanical forces and deformations. The results allow a complete picture of the tolerance of human tissues to sustained loads, and an understanding of the risk for onset of chronic wounds. Hence, this book is also valuable for all professionals involved in the prevention and treatment of chronic wounds.

What is a wound, how does it heal, and how can we prevent scarring? The concept of wound healing has puzzled humans even before the advent of modern medicine. In recent years, bioengineering has tackled the problems of cancer, tissue engineering and molecular manufacturing. The broad spectrum of technologies developed in these fields could potentially transform the wound care practice. However, entering the world of wound healing research is challenging — a broad spectrum of knowledge is required to understand wounds and improve healing. This book provides an essential introduction of the field of wound healing to bioengineers and scientists outside the field of medicine. Written by leading researchers from various fields, this book is a comprehensive primer that gives readers a holistic understanding of the field of wound biology, diagnostics and treatment technologies. Contents:Scarless Tissue Regeneration (Alexander Golberg)Anatomy of the Human Skin and Wound Healing (Amit Sharma, Labib R Zakka and Martin C Mihm Jr)Deprived and Enriched Environments: How Sensory Stimulation Affects Wound Healing (Jonathan G Fricchione and John B Levine)Models of Ischemic and Vascular Wounds (Michael T Watkins and Hassan Albadawi)Developmental Biology of Skin Wound Healing: On Pathways and Genes Controlling Regeneration Versus Scarring (Sarah Susan Kelangi and Marianna Bei)Nutrition, Metabolism, and Wound Healing Process (Yong-Ming Yu and Alan J Fischman)Polarization Sensitive Optical Coherence Tomography for Imaging of Wound Repair (Martin Villiger and Brett E Bouma)Functional Imaging of Wound Metabolism (Jake Jones, Vasily Belov and Kyle P Quinn)Functional Skin Substitutes — The Intersection of Tissue Engineering and Biomaterials (Kevin Dooley, Julie Devalliere and Basak Uygun)Biomaterial-Based Systems for Pharmacologic Treatment of Wound Repair (Mara A Pop, Julia B Sun and Benjamin D Almquist)Laser Tissue Welding in Wound Healing and Surgical Repair (Russell Urie, Tanner Flake and Kaushal Rege)Bioprinting for Wound Healing Applications (Aleksander Skardal, Sean Murphy, Anthony Atala and Shay Soker)Electroporation Applications in Wound Healing (Laure Gibot, Tadej Kotnik and Alexander Golberg) Readership: Bioengineers, scientists, researchers and graduate students outside the field of medicine.

This reference reports on progress in the development of materials used in or on the human body, ranging from biopolymers used in controlled-release drug delivery systems and prosthetic devices to metals used in bone repair and 'plastics' used in absorbable mechanisms such as sutures. A broad panel of engineers, designers, materials scientists, and physicians provide a multidimensional and interdisciplinary approach for this encyclopedic resource, offering highly detailed descriptions of actual clinical applications of biomaterials. Examines both research and clinical issues surrounding traditional and emerging biomaterials from a variety of professional perspectives.

Among the many applications of stem cell research are nervous system diseases, diabetes, heart disease, auto-immune diseases as well as Parkinson's disease, end-stage kidney disease, liver failure, cancer, spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, and Alzheimer's disease. Stem cells are self-renewing, unspecialised cells that can give rise to multiple types all of specialised cells of the body. Stem cell research also involves complex ethical and legal considerations since they involve adult, foetal tissue and embryonic sources. This book presents important research from around the globe.
