Abstract

Hemocompatibility of Biomaterials for Clinical Applications: Blood-Biomaterials Interactions summarizes the state-of-the-art on this important subject. The first part of the book reviews the latest research on blood composition and response, mechanisms of coagulation, test standards and methods. Next, the book assesses techniques for modifying biomaterial surfaces and developing coatings to improve hemocompatibility. In the final sections, users will find discussions on ways to improve the hemocompatibility of particular classes of biomaterials and a review of methods for improving medical devices. Provides comprehensive information on the fundamentals of hemocompatibility and new technologies Combines research in the biomaterials field in a digestible format for clinical applications Provides a complete overview biomaterials in current use and test methods.
