Natural tissue has been employed with varying degrees of success in prosthetic devices. A general absence of blood clotting has been experienced. Long-term durability of the materials is related to the preservation methods used and the suitability of the material to the environmental or...
We report some preliminary data on the residual activity of purified enzymes and on the enzymatic activity of microsomes immobilized in PVP by gamma irradiation cross-linking.
The “artificial gut system” for home parenteral nutrition for patients with severe bowel disease, which is rapidly becoming a powerful therapeutic tool, is first described, followed by a discussion of the history of dialysis and thoughts on where dialysis should go in the future.
The source and nature of presently used biomaterials are examined, and a hypothesis made as to where we should look for new ones for the future.
In the design and selection of a dialyzer for individual patient use, there are really three basic considerations: Functional requirements, individual operational features, and other consumer-oriented considerations. It is obvious that functionality must not be compromised and that differences...
An apparatus that uses a charcoal-aluminum oxide cartridge for simplifying haemodialysis by reducing the dialysis solution has been studied. Some adsorbing materials coated with a deacetylated cellulose triacetate membrane were also studied. The coating improves the material biocompatibility and...
A review of recent developments in European dialysis is given. After an extract from the EDTA register, the actual European dialyzers are described. Dialysis fluid regenerating systems are discussed as are also haemoperfuslon systems for detoxification.
Following a review of the compatibility of polymer with blood, the use of polyurethanes, hydrogels, polylactic acid, poly-α-cyanoacrylates, and polyamino acids as biomedical polymers is discussed.
