Abstract

See full text

Novel absorbable, semi-crystalline, polymer blend compositions are disclosed exhibiting enhanced crystallization and nucleation rates. Also disclosed are medical device constructs, such as fibers made from such blends. The blends have a first absorbable polymeric component having a first molecular weight distribution and a second absorbable polymeric component which has an ultrahigh molecular weight distribution. The first and second polymeric components may be the same polymer.
