An invaluable resource for clinicians as well as for researchers in materials and biomedical devices, this text summarizes recent research on the use of biomaterials and tissue engineering in the treatment of urological disorders. Part one reviews the fundamentals including biofilms and encrustation formation. Part two then discusses recent advances in biomaterials and the design of urological devices such as metal ureteral stents, self-lubricating catheter materials, and penile implants. The final section addresses urological tissue engineering, covering artificial and natural biomaterials, nanotechnology, and placental stem cells used for the regeneration of urological tissue and organs.
