Polyurethanes modified with natural polymers for medical application.

Part II. Polyurethane/gelatin, polyurethane/starch, polyurethane/cellulose (in English)

Polimery 2014, No 3, 197


DOI: dx.doi.org/10.14314/polimery.2014.197

Summary

This paper is a literature overview of biomedical PUR modifications with natural polymers such as starch, cellulose and gelatin. Properties like biodegradability and biocompatibility of modified PUR cause that these materials may be used as wound dressings, tissue scaffolds, tissue implants and also vascular grafts.


Key words: biomedical polyurethanes, gelatine, starch, cellulose, wound dressings, tissue scaffolds, tissue implants, vascular grafts
