A biomaterial is any natural or man-made material employed in, or used as, a medical device which performs, augments or replaces a natural function within a living organism.
Another definition of biomaterial is "any substance (other than drugs) or combination of substances synthetic or natural in origin, which can be used for any period of time, as a whole or as a part of a system which treats,
augments, or replaces any tissue, organ, or function of the body".
A biomaterial is different from a biological material such as bone that is produced by a biological system. Artificial hips, vascular stents, artificial pacemakers, and catheters are all made from different biomaterials.
Biomaterials are medical-grade polymers, metals, advanced ceramics, pyrolytic carbon, composites, and natural materials. End -use devices include implants, valves, grafts, pacemakers, bone repair and replacement devices, artificial organs, dental materials, drug -delivery systems, dialysis/separation/filtration systems, and catheters and stents.
