Changes in the physical properties of polymer materials during implantation in the biological environment can directly affect the ultimate performance of the polymer and/or device. We implanted four types of extraocular bands (porous, solid, composite, and patched) made from 11 types of materials in rabbit eyes and examined the changes in the physical… CONTINUE READING
