Polymer Principles

​Innovations in plastics and bioresorbables continue to push the boundaries of medtech materials.
 
Secant Medical Inc. is pursuing the bioresorbable angle with its Regenerez technology, designed to promote healing without the chronic inflammation associated with other bioresorbable materials.

Company executives contend that poly glycerol sebacate (PGS) has equivalent or better performance compared with traditional resorbables like polyglycolic acid (PGA) and polylactic acid (PLA), both of which lose strength as they degrade, potentially causing product failure. The pair also can trigger inflammation and scarring.
