|Title:||Shape memory in biodegradable polymeric systems : morphological and thermo-mechanical study||Authors:||Wong, Yee Shan||Keywords:||DRNTU::Science::Chemistry::Organic chemistry::Polymers||Issue Date:||2010||Source:||Wong, Y. S. (2010). Shape memory in biodegradable polymeric systems : morphological and thermo-mechanical study. Doctoral thesis, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.||Abstract:||Shape-memory materials have been proposed in biomedical implantation devices due to their ability to facilitate minimally invasive surgery, particularly in cardiovascular stent interventions. Therefore, our laboratory has been developing a completely degradable bi-layer polymeric stent with self expandability, which not only plays a dual role of maintaining or increasing the lumen of a vessel without causing excessive injury as well as providing the capability to deliver one or more drugs concurrently to the target site, but will disappear completely after healing.||Description:||196 p.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/47507||DOI:||10.32657/10356/47507||Rights:||Nanyang Technological University||Fulltext Permission:||open||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
