More and more medical device designs are moving to absorbable biomaterials that can respond to in vivo stimuli and are amenable to remodeling. Load-bearing implants that treat large defects greatly benefit from absorbable biomaterial coatings that enhance integration with the host tissues and improve long-term patency.
Bioresorbable stents, stent coatings, drug-eluting stents, orthopedic implants and fixation devices, dental implants, and medical device coatings are a few examples of devices that utilize absorbable polymers. Personalized medicine is driving a shift to additively manufactured devices at point of care settings, and many of our absorbable polymer formulations are suitable for 3D printing.
