Synthetic biodegradable polymers have seen a dramatic increase in their availability and utilization over the last few decades. The first reported biomedical application of biodegradable polymers was during the 70s in biodegradable sutures and to date, it remains as the most widespread usage of this family of materials. Biodegradable polymers have also been proven to be effective carriers in local drug delivery therapies and are widely used as a primary constituent of scaffolds in tissue engineering applications.
