... use of biomaterials, defined a widely acknowledged statement for biomaterials in the late 1980s. Williams also addressed the need to reflect the different attributes of materials that had more recently entered the marketplace, for example, the bioresorbable polymers that degrade over time. Williams...

...-density polyethylene ( Ref 32 ). A volume fraction of 40% HA was found to provide the optimal balance between ductility and bioactivity of the composite ( Ref 33 ). Several researchers have since combined poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a bioresorbable polymer, with HA to produce composites that have good...
