Bioresorbable Polymers Market 2018 Growth Opportunities By Top Manufactures, and

Posted by rushi007 on February 23rd, 2019

Bioresorbable polymers, also known as degradable polymers, are commonly used in various biomedical applications such as suturing thread, arterial stents, intravenous drug-delivery devices, vascular grafts, temporary bone fixation devices, and degradable sutures. These polymers are used as a replacement for metallic orthopedic devices due to their precise control of material composition and microstructure. Various bioresorbable polymers used in medical applications include polylactic acid (PLA), polyglycolic acid (PGA), and poly (lactic-co-glycolide) (PLGA) copolymers. Polylactic acid (PLA), or polylactide, is the most commonly used bioresorbable polymer. It is majorly used in synthetic grafts, orthopedic medicine, sutures, and drug delivery systems. Polyglycolic acid (PGA), or polyglycolide, another type of bioresorbable polymer is generally used in bioresorbable sutures, orthopedics, and craniomaxillofacial surgery.
