7 Hemocompatability measurement Polyurethane medical devices such as central venous catheters (CVCs) [139–141] and hemodialysis devices [142–144] require good hemocompatibility . 6, we know that when a device is implanted in the human body protein adsorption occurs in just a few seconds. In contact with blood, the protein layer interacts with platelets, which leads to thrombus formation and eventually to device failure. There are several tests available to evaluate hemocompatability. 5. More accurate quantitative methods are described below.
