Paper Abstract

There is growing demand for biodegradable polymer fibres in tissue engineering and nerve regeneration. We demonstrate a scalable and inexpensive fabrication technique to produce polycaproactone (PCL) fibres using fibredrawing technique. Here we report on the first successful drawing of hollow-core and solid-core PCL fibres of different cross sections. The demonstrated capacity to tailor the surface morphology of PCL fibres, together with their biodegradability and tissue compatibility, makes them a unique material base for tissue engineering and nerve regeneration applications.
