An in vitro degradation study of three bioresorbable glass fiber-reinforced poly(l-lactide-co-dl-lactide) (PLDLA) composites was carried out in simulated body fluid (SBF), to simulate body conditions, and deionized water, to evaluate the nature of the degradation products. The changes in mechanical and chemical properties were systematically characterized(More)
This article describes the dissolution behavior of three silica-based resorbable glasses manufactured by an industrial-type continuous fiber drawing process yielding fibers with tensile strength of 1800-2300MPa. The results of a long-term in vitro degradation testing of the manufactured high strength bioresorbable glass fibers are presented. The degradation(More)
