Shape memory polymer scaffolds for tissue defects
MetadataShow full item record
A method of making a shape memory polymer (SMP) tissue scaffold includes forming a salt template and adding a macromer solution to the salt template. The macromer solution may include a photoinitiator solution. The method includes drying the SMP scaffold and leaching salt from the SMP scaffold. A coating is then applied to the SMP scaffold. The coating may be applied either before or after heating the SMP scaffold.
