Functionalization of Aqueous-Based Silk Orthopedic Devices

Hotz, Blake.

Abstract: Today's orthopedic hardware is limited in its ability to restore native functionality to a site of injury. Non-resorbable devices have impressive mechanical properties but they are associated with long-term complications which often necessitate implant removal via secondary surgery. Current resorbable orthopedic devices made from synthetic polymers lack much of the functionality of non-r... read more
