Polymer Biomaterials

Polymers are the macromolecules attained from various repeated subunits. Polymers are used as biomaterials and that can be of the following types, i.e., Natural Polymers: Chitosan, Collagen, Alginate. These natural polymers are used for drug delivery, wound dressing and tissue engineering. Synthetic Polymers like Polyvinylchloride (PVC),Polypropylene, Polymethyl methacrylate are used in implants, medical disposable supplies, dressings, etc. Biodegradable Biomaterials: Polyactide, Polyglycolide, etc. It is valuable as it regenerates tissue and does not leave residual traces on implantation. Mostly used for tissue screws, cartilage repair and drug delivery systems. Biopolymers are those which are established from the living organisms. Some of the examples are DNA, RNA, proteins, carbohydrates, etc. It can also be used as packaging material. Polymer composites are widely used for preparing medical implants.
