Fracture Fixation with Biodegradable Bone Plates

 

In this study biodegradable and biocompatible polyesters are tested alone or in combination with hydroxyapatite (HAP). The aim is to investigate and improve the mechanical characteristic of these plates and when necessary, load them with antibiotics, growth factors and other agents to improve bone healing.
