What sterilization process could be applied to PU-based products? Although a general overview of the physicochemical properties of model PUs (laboratory-scale) was highly important for the scope of this book (Chapter 1), the answer to these questions is also mandatory. To begin with, this Chapter provides a review of the commercial polyurethanes that have been used in biomedical applications. A detailed history of PU materials, including both biomedical and industrial chronology, highlights the importance of this family of polymers in medicine.
