Abstract

Towards the development of new biomaterials for use in angioplasty, star-shaped polylactic acids have been synthesised and shown to adhere well to living cells, by in vitro and in vivo experiments, and to hydrolyse over time in a physiologically relevant environment into biocompatible and bioabsorbable entities that are capable of bestowing properties of anticoagulation and angiogenesis to their living host.
