Bioresorbable ureteral stents have the advantage of eliminating the need for a second removal surgery and hence avoiding certain complications. However the inadequate mechanical performance and lack of control over the rate of resorption limit the use of current prototype designs. This paper focuses on a series of resorbable millimeter-sized stents which(More)
Ureteral stent is commonly used to provide urinary drainage after urological practice. Preliminary investigation on fibrous assembly degradable ureteral stent is conducted in this study. The stent is composed of PGA and PLGA multifilament. The stent has a bamboo-like structure to provide better mechanical properties and the abilities of self-degradation(More)
