The use of degradable materials is required to address current performance and functionality shortcomings from biologically-derived tissues and non-resorbable synthetic materials used for hernia mesh repair applications. Herein a series of degradable l-valine-co-l-phenylalanine poly(ester urea) (PEU) copolymers were investigated for soft-tissue repair. Poly[(1-VAL-8)0.7-co-(1-PHE-6)0.3] showed the ...
