The blood compatibility of poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO)-grafted and heparin (Hep) immobilized polyurethanes was investigated using in vitro plasma recalcification time (PRT), activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT), platelet adhesion and activation, and peripheral blood mononuclear cell (PBMC) adhesion and activation. In the experiment with plasma… CONTINUE READING
