Fabrication of a Biodegradable Implant with Tunable Characteristics for Bone Implant Applications.

Abstract

Biodegradable polymers are appealing material for the manufacturing of surgical implants as such implants break down in vivo, negating the need for a subsequent operation for removal. Many biocompatible polymers produce acidic breakdown products that can lead to localized inflammation and osteolysis. This study assesses the feasibility of fabricating… (More)
