Why is this important?
Existing materials available for surgical repair marginally meet current surgical demands. Unsolved problems remain (delayed or lack of resorption, loose bodies, cyst formation, mechanical failure, postoperative imaging, etc) in surgical repair of soft tissue injuries (including knee, shoulder, and lower extremities). The occurrence of soft tissue, sports injury-related medical events continue to grow as patients remain active longer, and expectations for a return to activity increase. With more natural absorption, there remains potential for a bone growth stimulative effect, further enabling the return to activity and lifestyle.
