Abstract (English)

Current clinically used lipophilic anti-adhesive films, like SurgiWrap®, have to be fixed to the affected tissue using sutures due to their limited adhesiveness and only degrade very slowly within months and years due to the hydrophobicity and the high molecular weight of the used PLA, which effectively inhibits the uptake of water. The aim of this work was to prepare films that have a much ...

Zurzeit müssen lipophile antiadhäsive Filme, wie SurgiWrap®, an betroffenes Gewebe angenäht werden, da sie nicht unmittelbar am Gewebe anhaften. Des Weiteren bauen sich diese Filme aus PLA aufgrund ihres hydrophoben Charakters und der dadurch gehinderten Wasseraufnahme im Körper sehr langsam ab, was Monate bis Jahre dauern kann. Ziel dieser Arbeit war die Herstellung von Filmen, welche sich ...
