Resumen

Polymer biomaterials have had an unfavourable image due to their association with pollution. However, they are important in biomedicine. Polymers are versatile materials, they can be obtained in several chemical configurations and mixtures to generate composite materials with synergistic properties. In this research, a scientific and technological analysis of the biomedical application of polymeric biomaterials was performed, along with the compilation of their applications, production, mechanical properties and important features for the biomedical industry. Polymeric biomaterials are a cutting-edge topic, as reflected in the number of scientific articles and patents. Nowadays, these biomaterials can replace, reinforce or fulfil a specific function in the human body. However, due to the complexity of biological systems, immune reactions are still present, preventing the development of tissues and functional organs in laboratory scale.
