Biomedical and Biodegradable Polymers

Biomedical polymers are essentially a biomaterial that is used and adapted for a medical application. Biomedical polymer can have a beginning functional, such as being used for a heart valve and more interactive purpose such as hydroxyl apatite coated in implant. Natural biodegradable polymers are called biopolymers. Polysaccharides, as starch and cellulose, represent the most characteristic family of these natural polymers. Other natural polymers as proteins can be used to produce biodegradable materials. These are the two main renewable sources of biopolymers.
