bio alcamid
Jul 20, 2007

is bio alcamid soluble?

Response from Dr. Conway

The compound is actually 96% water and 4% polymer dissolved in water. By its very nature, it is quite soluble and this is one of its advantages, to blend into the tissues where it is injected in a more physiological manner. It is not so soluble, however, that the polymer itself is dissolved in other bodily fluids and then enters the circulation. In fact, the implant can still be readily identified after some long period of time and removed if necessary.
