Hybrid polymeric materials for medical applications

Polimery 2006, No 2, 87


Summary

Paper presents recent achievements related to polymer containing organic-inorganic hybrids used for various medical applications. In particular, there are described syntheses of polymers on inorganic supports, syntheses of hybrid nano- and microparticles, self-assembly of nano- and microparticles into hybrid structures, and also hybrid materials obtained in sol-gel processes. Moreover, presented are selected applications of these materials for medical diagnostic, fabrication of temporary bone-growth inducing implants, and examples of drug delivery systems from implantable devices, like scaffolds for tissue engineering and stents for coronary angioplasty.


Key words: polymer hybrid materials, medical applications, nano- and microparticles, biodegradable polymers, biosensors, polymeric scaffolds, drug delivery
