Project at a Glance

Contents on the CD Rom

  • There is considerable need and interest to develop tough biodegradable elastomers, which exhibit mechanical properties similar to that of soft tissue
  • Poly (glycerol–sebacate) (PGS) is an elastomeric biodegradable polymer
  • PGS is said to be have a superior biocompati bilitying
    in vitro and in vivo when compared to PLGA, as well as demonstrated a surface degradati on profi le with subsequent superior structural integrity and form stability
  • A tough biodegradable elastomer, based on the polycondensati on reaction of glycerol and sebacic acid into a gelled, crosslinked network, designated poly(glycerol sebacate) (PGS) was described
  • PGS was incorporated into a scaffold for vascular tissue
    engineering and its hemocompatibility in vitro relative to ePTFE, PLGA, TCP, and glass was evaluated
  • PGS Stents for the Heart are being developed
