Polymers have shown tremendous capacity as biomaterials with degradable polymers holding particular promise. Control over their microstructure and nanostructure as indicated by the blue and orange regions, respectively, allow for the design of complex materials that have desired interactions with host cells and tissues. This review overviews the wide range of degradable polymers that are available to biomedical researchers paying specific attention to new advances that have been made in the past 4 years.
