Development of multifaceted suture biomaterial from natural resources : 1 Years
Development of multifaceted suture biomaterial from natural resources details :
Suture of natural or synthetic origin is an integral part of surgery. Mechanical stability, proper tissue compatibility, thermal stability, and superior tensile strength of the suture materials are the pre-requisite characteristics for the successful tissue adherence. Also, bacterial infection of surgical site and biofilm development on suture surface is a major problem associated with surgery. Further, cost is another issue. Hence, over the years, it has been the attempt of researchers working in this field, to arrive at a methodology for obtaining a suture biomaterial, which is not cost effective but also technically efficient to take care of the requirements. In this context recently we have developed surface fictionalized, eco-friendly, facile and cost effective method of fabrication of advanced suture biomaterial from agriculture and plant waste products from Antheraea assamensis (muga silk), Philosamia ricini (eri silk), Anannas comosus (pineapple) and Musa balbisiana (banana).
Research : 5 Years
