Abstract: The degradation of poly(propylene fumarate-co-ethylene glycol) hydrogels was examined in vitro in phosphate-buffered saline at pH 7.4 and in vivo in a subcutaneous rat model. These hydrogels have potential application as biodegradable, injectable cardiovascular stents, and, as such, their mass loss, dimensional changes, mechanical properties, morphology, and biocompatibility over a 12-week time course were evaluated. Three formulations were fabricated: one base formulation consisting of 25% (w/w) PEG, molecula… Show more
