Three types of materials of special interest to the NIH Biomaterials Program were evaluated for their tendency to induce hemolysis when exposed to a laminar blood flow between rotating parallel disks. The three types were: (1) TDMAC-heparinized surfaces of polycarbonate (Lexan), silicone rubber, and polyvinylchloride; (2) polyacrylamide hydrogels (PAH) prepared by three different chemical processes; and (3) fluorinated ethylcellulose (FEC). All were compared to a polyethylene (PE) standard, to…

Surface roughness and edge geometries in hemolysis with rotating disk flow.
It was shown that roughness under 4 microns has negligible effect and that hemolysis increases sharply for roughness above about 11 microns, and that glassy plastics can be machined with more reproducibility at the corners than plastics above their Tg such as polyethylene.
Surface and bulk effects on platelet adhesion and aggregation during simple (laminar) shear flow of whole blood.
Models proposed to explain the experimental results were found to support a surface-controlled mechanism on platelet adhesion and aggregation events during simple shear flow of whole blood.
The effects of antibiotics on hemolytic behavior of red cells
Human blood was sheared between rotating polyethylene disks and plasma hemoglobin measured at intervals to produce kinetic hemolysis curves (KHC), plotted as free hemoglobin concentration vs time.
Effect of surface roughness on hemolysis in a pivot bearing supported Gyro centrifugal pump (C1E3).
From a hemolytic point of view, an extremely smooth pump housing is required for use of an impeller type centrifugal pump as a CPB device, but it is conceivable that a smooth surface is not always essential for an impellers and housings that is used as an LVAD.
In vitro characterization of the occurrence of hemolysis during extracorporeal blood circulation using a mini hemodialyzer.
A minimodule dialyzer was made of polyacrylonitrile hollow fibers and tested in an in vitro circuit under varying flow rates and blood volumes and the results show that hemolysis ratio (HR) increased with blood flow rate.
Role of computational fluid mechanics in the analysis of prosthetic heart valve flow
The conclusion drawn is that CFM has a major role to play in the analysis of prosthetic heart valve flow and design because of the improved availability of data afforded and the increased correlation between CFM and clinical flow regimes, due to the ability to consider realistic models of blood.


Effect of surface materials on shear-induced hemolysis.
A partial explanation is proposed for shear-induced hemolysis in this low-stress regime (under 500 dynes/cm2) and reports of plasma protein adsorption.
Hemolysis in capillary flow.
Several aspects of the experimental results indicated that hemolysis occurs because of interactions of uncertain character between the red cells and the wall and is related to cell velocities near the wall.
A device to study the degradation of blood in a shear field with controlled wall effects.
Venous blood was found to hemolyze much more than arterial blood and the extent of hemotysis increased with time, and changes were also observed in the electrophoretic pattern of the plasma proteins.
Nonthrombogenic Plastic Surfaces
Heparin has been chemically combined with a number of plastic surfaces rendering them nonthrombogenic as judged by Lee-White coagulation tests in vitro with human blood. Addition of quaternary
Hemolysis in simple shear flows
Whole human blood was sheared in the flow field of a concentric cylinder Couette viscometer in the hope of isolating the physical traumas specifically related to the escape of intracellular
Erythrocyte damage and destruction induced by shearing stress.
Shearing stresses above a critical level resulted in overt hemolysis of some erythrocytes and damage to others evidenced by diminished survival of Cr 51 -labeled ery throats, similar to those observed in patients with prosthetic cardiac valves.
Tetramethylbenzidine--a substitute for benzidine in hemoglobin analysis.
3,3',5,5'-tetramethylbenzidine is used for hemoglobin determinations in the range of 1 to 100 mg/dl, and the sensitivity of TMB is at least seven times that of benzidine under comparable conditions.
A modification of the benzidine method for measurement of hemoglobin in plasma and urine.
A modification of the benzidine method for measuring hemoglobin in plasma and urine is described. When a known amount of hemoglobin is added to plasma or urine more than 95 per cent can be recovered
