Inorganic Biodegradable Devices For Temporary Implants, Kassan Unda
"Implantable electronic devices have great potential to benefit many health care technologies. They comprise of two different categories. The first is permanent prosthetic devices like cardiac pacemakers or nerve stimulants. The other category includes temporary devices for interventional medical monitoring and control scenarios, which lose functionality and become unnecessary after their intended operational lifetime. This can cause serious electromagnetic and biomechanical safety concerns if not removed from the body by an additional surgical operation.
This thesis focuses on exploring the feasibility of implantable inorganic bioresorbable thin film resistive devices utilizing bioactive glass as the core structural material. This device will ...
