Effects of the length of crosslink chain on poly(2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) (pHEMA) swelling and biomechanical properties.

Abstract

Polymers are widely used in medicine for vascular prostheses, bone substitutes, and devices for controlled release. Among these polymers, poly(2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) (pHEMA) is the most employed. To confer particular properties, pHEMA can be copolymerized with other monomers or in the presence of plasticizers or crosslinking agents. The influence of… (More)
