Significant advances have been made in the last four decades in the development of biodegradable polymers for biomedical applications. More recently, polymer composites are being increasingly examined for biomedical applications, especially to function as scaffolds in the field of tissue engineering. There are obvious advantages associated with bioabsorbable devices for use in medical applications, in particular polymer composites comprising degradable polymers that can support three-dimensional tissue formation.

In general, mass loss has been reported to be slow with no apparent acute or chronic inflammatory response; however, the degradation products being acidic, any build-up of such products is likely to cause an inflammation. 5 1–2 6 1–2 1–2 6–12 – 12–16 6–12 34 Cellular response to biomaterials and do not evoke any osteostimulatory response; however, bone formation around some of these implants has been reported. The inherently complex nature of the biological responses makes it difficult to generalise the cellular response of these types of polymers.
