About Orthopaedic Polymers (Prod 6764)

The terminology "biodegradable polymers" covers many polymers based on organic acids and derivatives of polylactides and polyglycolides. Under normal physiological conditions, polylactides/polyglycolides are hydrolytically degraded into non-toxic (lactic and/or glycolic acid) easily metabolized and eliminated by the body under CO2 and H2O.
