Couverture de l’ouvrage Plastics in Medical Devices for Cardiovascular Applications

Plastics in Medical Devices for Cardiovascular Applications enables designers of new cardiovascular medical devices to make decisions about the kind of plastics that can go into the manufacture of their device by explaining the property requirements of various applications in this area, including artificial valves, lead insulation, balloons, vascular grafts, and more.



  • Enables designers to improve device performance and remain compliant with regulations by selecting the best material for each application
  • Presents a range of applications, including artificial valves, stents, and vascular grafts
  • Explains which materials can be used for each application, and why each is appropriate, thus assisting in the design of better tools and processes
