Abstract: SummaryThis experiment describes resorption rate, light and electron microscopic appearance of the implant site, and tissue distribution and route of elimination of radioactivity from carbon-labelled polylactic acid implants. Fifty-six rats received abdominal implants and were serially sacrificed at 28, 56, 84, 112, 140, 154, and 168 days. Urine and fecal output was measured for radioactivity, along with implant site and several tissues at the time of sacrifice. Tissue distribution of activity was negligible.…
