Biodegradible Multifunctional Catheters

The invention is a biodegradable catheter to be used for brachytherapy that will serve many purposes to enhance the therapy and overall cancer treatment.

The catheter will have a general biodegradable polymer composition such as polycaprolactone (PCL), polylactide (PLA), or other biodegradable polymers. In addition, nanoparticles will be embedded within the polymer or coated at the catheter tip. These nanoparticles can boost the treatment or function additional therapy such as hyperthermal therapy and chemotherapy. Further, the catheter can be a path for light source that can be used for photodynamic therapy.
