Evaluated of the γ-Ray Radiosterilized Cross-Linked PLLA and PLLA/HA In Vivo

Abstract:

Article Preview

There are still some existing problems that are common to all absorbable materials; 1) It cannot be subjected to radiosterilization, 2) Sufficient strength cannot be maintained until the complete bone union is obtained. To solve these problems, PLLA and PLLA/HA were mixed with cross-bridge supplementary agent, Triallyl Isocyanurate (TAIC). Using these materials in vivo, we created and tested γ-ray radiosterilized absorbable bone fixation materials.
