Biodegradable polymers such as poly(alpha-hydroxy acids), poly(anhydrides), poly(ortho esters), poly(amino acids) and polyphosphazenes have raised considerable interest as short-term medical implants due to their transient nature. Among these, polyphosphazenes are a relatively new class of polymers, quite distinct from all the biodegradable polymers… CONTINUE READING
