Abstract
Biomaterials based on block segmented copolymers constituted by hard and soft segments have attracted much attention for biomedical applications in the last decades, specifically as absorbable monofilament sutures. Polyglycolide has demonstrated to be a good candidate to constitute the hard segment due to its biodegradability and high stiffness, whereas the incorporation of different monomers (e.g. -caprolactone, trimethylene carbonate or glycolide) in a random distribution as soft segment promo...
