Print Your Way To Success: Selective Laser Sintering (SLS)

By Dr. C├ęcile Boudot And Dr. Thiago Borges, Evonik Health Care

Bioresorbable polymers such as RESOMER® have been used for decades in sports medicine, orthopedic and surgical applications. The fact that they are bioresorbable is advantageous because a second surgical intervention is not needed to remove the device. These polymers are commonly used for fabrication of suture anchors and interference screws. However, over the few past years, 3D printing technologies have expanded the capabilities to produce other types of biodegradable implants, as illustrated in Figure 1.
