NOVELTY – The polymeric hydro-gel for repair of osteochondrite defects comprises hydrogels of poly(2-hydroxy ethyl methacrylate), copolymers of poly(2-hydroxy ethyl methacrylate-co-acrylic acid) and mixtures of poly(2-hydroxy ethyl methacrylate) with other acrylate or methacrylate polymers. The hydrogels are branched by e.g. ethylene dimethyl acrylate. The branching agent, in the proportion 1-25 per cent is supplemented by a polymerisation initiator. USE – For use in medicine.
