Such scaffolds exhibit excellent physicochemical and biological properties and can encapsulate and release various drugs in a controlled fashion. This article reviews recent advances in the design and manufacture of electrospun scaffolds for long-term drug release, placing particular emphasis on polymer selection, types of incorporated drugs and the latest drug-loading techniques. Finally, applications of such devices in traumatic or disease states requiring effective and sustained drug action are discussed and critically appraised in their biomedical context.
