Examines the use of reversible hydrogels, stimuli-sensitive hydrogels, and in vivo applications of hydrogels. Discusses current issues in biodegradation, including controlled release from degradable matrices, degradation of synthetic materials in marine and soil environments, and time-relateddegradation of support devices and other applications of biomaterials. Reviews applications of biomaterials and hydrogels.
