Findings from J.M. Lackner and co-authors broaden understanding of biomechanical engineering
April 14th, 2010
According to a study from Austria, "State-of-the-art non-thrombogenic blood contacting Surfaces are based on heparin and struggle with the problem of bleeding. However, appropriate blood flow characteristics are essential for clinical application."
"Thus, there is increasing demand to develop new coating materials for improved human body acceptance. deposited by vacuum coating techniques Would be an excellent alternative if the coating temperatures can be kept low because of the applied Substrate materials of low temperature resistance (polymers). Most of the recently used plasma-based deposition techniques cannot fulfill this demand. However, adequate film structure and...
