Biomaterials in Cardiology
Cardiovascular biomaterials lead the category of biomaterials on the basis of demand and investments in this field. Blood compatibility test is the major criteria which limit the application of biomaterials for cardiovascular surgeries. The current trend of the Cardiovascular Biomaterials is endothelization of the cardiac implants and utility of human pluripotent stem cells. The scope for Cardiovascular Biomaterials is growing day by day and several young investigators and researchers are developing an interest in this area. Furthermore, the biomaterials act as a drug carrier or drug delivery agents.
