Efficacy of a new coating material, PMEA, for cardiopulmonary bypass circuits in a porcine model.

Abstract

BACKGROUND A new coating material, poly-2-methoxyethyl acrylate (PMEA), was developed to improve the biocompatibility of cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) circuits. METHODS To investigate the efficacy of the PMEA coating for CPB circuits, we compared PMEA-coated circuits (group P, n = 6) with uncoated circuits (group C, n = 6) and heparin (covalent-bonded… (More)
