  • Patent number: 10105467
    Abstract: Biodegradable, bioabsorbable cross-linked polymer tissue scaffolds for filling a void in human or animal soft tissue, such as a surgical or other wound, are disclosed. Drugs incorporated into the polymer backbone and/or loaded into the matrix are released directly to the target site. Additional non-toxic chemical constituents can be used to tune the hydrophilio hydrophobic and other physical properties of the cross-linked polymer tissue scaffolds, and incorporating brominated or iodinated constituents provides radio-opacity. The radio-opaque cross-linked polymer tissue scaffolds can assist in the targeting of radiation therapy.

  • Publication number: 20180280567
    Abstract: A biocompatible nerve conduit for nerve re-generation, wherein a porous fiber tube is coated with a bioresorbable hydrogel, with the fibers being formed from a polymer that supports nerve regeneration by preferential adsorption of endogenous proteins and braided with pores in the range from 5 to 200 micrometers using a kink-resistant braiding pattern and the hydro gel coating material and thickness being selected to control the overall porosity, so that nutrients and oxygen can diffuse through said hydrogel coating but the infiltration of fibrous tissue through the coating is prevented.

  • Publication number: 20170246351
    Abstract: A biocompatible sleeve designed to encase an assembly of small 3D muscles that have been cultured in vitro. The sleeve is formed from polymer fibers in such a way that pushing the two ends of the sleeve towards each other increases the diameter of the sleeve so as to facilitate insertion of the engineered muscles. Subsequent pulling at the ends of the sleeves decreases the diameter of the sleeve to facilitate a secure fit around the engineered muscle during implantation of the sleeve into a patient. The composition of the polymer fibers can be tuned to achieve the desired mechanical properties and rate of degradability.
