The current study focuses on the nanostructuring of our new drug-eluting porous films and its effect on the drug release profile of both hydrophilic and hydrophobic drugs. Nanostructuring was obtained using both the dispersion and the condensation methods of emulsion processing. These new highly porous nanostructured films can be used as basic elements of various drug-eluting medical devices.
