This study focuses on analyzing the effects of several factors on the rate of decay of inherent viscosity (iv) during hydrolytic degradation. The analysis was made for oriented PLLA, 96L/4D PLA and 80L/20D,L PLA. The analyzed polymers were found to have identical rate of iv loss (P < 0.05), given that the materials have otherwise similar initial material properties. The effect of the post-processing residual monomer was dose dependent, i.e. the higher the monomer content the faster the degradation (P < 0.05). Samples with a smaller diameter (1.1 mm) were found to have a faster rate of iv loss than the samples with a larger diameter (4 mm) (P < 0.05). A multiple linear regression analysis was used to create a five-component linear model to predict changes in the materials' inherent viscosity. This model yielded accurate predictions during the initial stages of the hydrolytic degradation process where the iv loss was virtually linear.
