Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate this polymer for its physiomechanical properties and degradation characteristics, and more importantly its thermal stability and processibility for forming structural components. The polymer was found to be nontoxic and biocompatible from the in vitro and implantation studies. Further refinement on the synthesis process will certainly enhance the polymer's MW and tensile properties. Poly(DTH carbonate) has demonstrated its potential as a new biomaterial for absorbable orthopaedic devices.
