Effect of Injection Molding Melt Temperatures on PLGA Craniofacial Plate Properties during In Vitro Degradation

Table 1

Injection molding parameters used to produce PLGA plates. All the production parameters were kept constant while varying the melt injection temperature (240°C for PLGA_lowT and 280°C for PLGA_highT).
