Tailored Implants Made of PVDF

Ageing Resistance

PVDF has been used as a surgical suture material for many decades with great success, even in the most demanding areas of application such as ophthalmology and cardiology [91].

Long-term data with observation periods of up to seven years prove that: The condition of the PVDF surface remains unchanged, filaments are still stable, nothing becomes brittle [101,2A,5B,27A,52B,93A].
