Their popularity in recent years has been amplified by the wide range of applications that these polymers possess. Their transient nature when used as biomedical implants such as surgical sutures has revolutionized modern surgical techniques. Their use as drug carriers for controlled delivery systems has permitted local drug delivery without the risks associated with permanent foreign bodies or with systemic therapy. On the other hand, with the exception of polyanhydrides, it is likely that all clinically useful absorbable polymers are polyesters or copolyesters.

4 show that these polymers are promising precursors for strong, multifilament yarn that can be converted into high-strength braids with exceptionally high knot strength. The high knot strength of this suture, as compared to Panacryl”, is attributed to the inherent toughness of the yarn that, in turn, is associated with the unique segmented structure of the polymer chains. The results also reflect the promising properties of this braid for use not only in orthopedic applications but also for a broad range of surgical procedures.

5 kGy to accelerate the BSR profile if so desired. The results of this study led the authors to conclude that: • Certain polyaxial copolymers can be converted to compliant monofilaments with comparable, or superior, initial strength relative to surgical gut sutures. • The BSR of the monofilament can be modulated by controlling the sterilization dose to produce sutures that can be competitive with many types of surgical gut sutures. • Polyaxial copolyesters may be well suited to preparing a synthetic alternative to surgical gut sutures.
