[On the preparation and mechanical properties of PVA hydrogel bionic cartilage/bone composite artificial articular implants].

In view of the problems that conventional artificial cartilages have no bioactivity and are prone to peel off in repeated uses as a result of insufficient strength to bond with subchondral bone, we have designed and prepared a novel kind of PVA-BG composite hydrogel as bionic artificial articular cartilage/bone composite implants. The effects of processes… CONTINUE READING
