Demand for polyglycolic acid has been derived by analyzing the global and regional trends pertaining to demand from major applications in all regions and countries.
Poly(hydroxyortho esters) such as polyglycolic acid (PGA), polylactic acid (PLA), and their copolymers have been used for three dimensional culture and transplantation of articular, auricular, nasal, costochondral, tracheal, and intervertebral disk, chondrocytes.
Candidate polysaccharide or proteoglycan subunits include aggrecan, agrin, bamacan, heparan sulfate, chondroitin sulfate, keratan sulfate, versican, phosphocan, perlecan, hyaluronan, decorin, dermatan sulfate, biglycan, fibromodulin, alginate, polylactate, polyglycolic acid, starch, dextran, agarose, chitan, chitosan, and heparin.
Circumstantial evidence has linked chondrolysis to arthroscopic procedures involving mishandling of thermal probes, the use of bioabsorbable labral fixation devices containing proinflammatory compounds such as polyglycolic acid, and--most significantly--postoperative use of high-volume intra-articular pain pumps to administer local anesthetic.
reported the use of calf tenocytes to seed polyglycolic acid scaffolds in vitro [19].
Nerve tubes have been manufactured in the past, using polyglycolic acid (PGA) [10], poly L-lactic acid [13], and poly DL-lactide-co-[epsilon]-caprolactone [14].
The evidence was consistent that absorbable sutures are preferred and that polyglycolic acid sutures are associated with significantly less perineal morbidity.
Polyglycolic acid (Dexon, American Cyanamid Co, Wayne, NJ) is a bioabsorbable substance that is currently used as a suture material (24) and in mesh form to wrap internal organs injured as a result of trauma (25).
