Excessive wear debris in prosthesis tends to induce loosening, which is a major problem affecting the durability of long-serving implants. Although bionic synovial fluid can be used to improve the lubrication of artificial joints, the fluid is often absorbed easily by the tissues of human body. To enhance the effectiveness of bionic synovial fluid, poly(ε-caprolactone)-poly(ethylene glycol)-poly(ε-caprolactone) (PCEC) hydrogel was prepared as a carrier for the bovine serum albumin (BSA) in… CONTINUE READING
