Innovative Biomaterial Solutions with Polyurethanes
Tue. February 5| 8:30 AM - 9:15 AM | 210C
Polyurethanes are extremely versatile materials. They can range from being hard, rigid materials to soft, pliable gels. This versatility combined with their acceptance in the body make them very attractive as biomaterials. Polyurethanes can also be formulated as either biostable or bioresorbable materials and this adds to their versatile nature and allows them to be used in a wide variety of medical applications.
Topics covered include:
Overview of the use of polyurethane biomaterials within the body systems - Long term implants and biostability - Use of polyurethanes as drug delivery systems - Innovative application examples
