A sensitive and quick method for measuring platelet and leucocyte deposition contributes to material evaluation. With a newly developed fluorescence labeling method we examined the deposition of platelets(More)

In this search for better patencies, modifications in the wall structure are being made. Directions found in the literature suggest that pore size plays an important role in achieving better patencies. Thus far, no study has been(More)
