Hemocompatibility studies on a degradable polar hydrophobic ionic polyurethane (D-PHI).

Abstract

Biomaterial blood compatibility is a complex process that involves four key pathways, including the coagulation cascade, the complement system, platelets, and leukocytes. While many studies have addressed the initial contact of blood with homopolymeric (e.g. Teflon) or simple copolymeric (e.g. Dacron) biomaterials, relatively less attention has been given… (More)
