We prepared the poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA)/nanohydroxyapatite (n-HA) composite and investigated the in vitro degradation of pure PLLA material and PLLA/n-HA composites in order to identify a suitable and ideal artificial bone tissue repair material. The water uptake, weight loss, and changes in the PBS pH value and in the mechanical properties of material were measured during the processes that PLLA and PLLA/n-HA biological composites were degraded in PBS. We also performed electron microscopic… CONTINUE READING
