The main purpose for preparation of PVA (polyvinyl alcohol) hydrogel enriched with Mimosa tenuiflora is to offer a new alternative in tissue regeneration field. In this manner, PVA confers soft consistency to hydrogel matrix and allows homogeneous distribution of mimosa in the material. Several approaches reported different uses for PVA in pharmaceutical, biomedical and other fields. The biomedical applications of PVA include eye drops, contact lenses, artificial cartilage, and more, due to its softness, roughness and porosity [1-6]. In addition, PVA is being used to elaborate controlled interconnected micro porous three dimensional (3D) scaffolds for various applications, making PVA an excellent substitute of conjunctive tissue.
