Title: Resorbable polymeric device for localized drug delivery

Abstract: An implantable device for facilitating the healing of voids in bone, cartilage and soft tissue is disclosed. In one embodiment, the device is arranged for the local delivery of therapeutic agent. A preferred embodiment is a porous resorbable implant, wherein the therapy delivery may be localized in nature, rather than systemic, such that higher doses at the target site may be allowed than would be tolerable by the body systemically.
