You may not go for some places and spend the moment to just locate guide The. Focusing on a range of components used to produce polyurethanes, this book presents an analysis of environmental issues and views on the applications for.

In addition, it was found that only a minor amount of biodegradation was seen on polycarbonate-urethanes as compared to unmodified PEUs and PDMS-PEU, thus confirming the oxidative stability of the carbonate linkage.

They found that highly hydrophilic polyurethane-polyvinyl pyrrolidone or, in contrast, highly hydrophobic polyurethane-poly methyl methacrylate IPNs elicited inert responses in vivo.

The authors concluded that the relative hydrophobicity or hydrophilicity of polymer surfaces is an important factor determining tissue compatibility. They also found that interfacial energy had no correlation with tissue responses whereas an interfacial energy near zero has been shown to be a requirement for blood compatibility.

More recently, Hunt et al further investigated the effect of changing the hydrophilicity of polyurethanes on the in vivo biological response. After intramuscular implantation, the acute and chronic inflammatory responses were evaluated by counting specific cell types and quantifying cytokines released from these cells. In conclusion, the effect of hydrophilicity, net charge, antioxidant incorporation, and chemical composition on the hemocompatibility, biocompatibility or biostability of PU surfaces is still under debate and requires clear and well-designed studies to bring quantifiable and reproducible parameters that will discriminate between polyurethanes of various chemical composition, structure and morphology.

Effect of Protein Adsorption on Polyurethanes One final thought regarding the hemocompatibility and biocompatibility of polyurethanes is to review the effects, potential benefits or drawbacks of protein adsorption on PU surfaces.

Upon implantation, one of the first events which occurs is the adsorption of proteins onto polymeric surfaces. Plasma proteins which adsorbed to the surfaces of biomaterials include albumin, hemoglobin, thrombin, fibrinogen, fibronectin, complement components, and immunoglobulins IgG. The composition of the adsorbed proteic layer is strongly dependent on the structure and composition of the polymers.

Albumin was also shown to have preferential adsorption characteristics onto segmented polyurethanes. When exposed to blood, albuminated PU surfaces were found to be less thrombogenic by masking the substrate from the blood's host defense activation mechanisms.

While intending to elucidate these interactions, a limited number of studies have looked at the intimate relationship between blood proteins and various cells involved in the inflammatory response of biomaterials in terms of chemotaxis, proliferation, and activation.

One of the most interesting and perhaps surprising results obtained by Anderson's group was the greatest activation of monocytes in terms of IL-1 secretion by various materials including Biomer which were precoated with albumin. The variability of their results was imparted to the differential protein adsorption properties of the polymers.

In a follow-up study, they reported that albumin preadsorbed on Biomer suppressed fibroblast activity in a polymer-dependent manner. In contrast, Hasper et al investigated the cellular reactions to silicone and polyurethane by measuring IL-8 and MIP-1a secreted by monocytes as well as P-selectin and platelet-derived growth factor PDGF-AB released by platelets following in vitro incubation.

Their results revealed that a Pellethane used in the production of the Berlin Heart pumps and cannulas activated the complement cascade and platelets but showed lower monocyte activation compared to silicone. By pretreating the PU and silicone surfaces with albumin, they demonstrated reduced monocyte activation IL-8 for both types of surfaces and concluded that albumin treatment could be useful in preventing inflammatory and thrombotic complications during the initial circulating support.

There is compelling evidence to suggest that among plasma proteins, albumin may be beneficial to blood contacting surfaces, such as polyurethanes, by reducing platelet and bacterial adhesion. On the other hand, albuminated surfaces may have a propensity to activate monocytes and inhibit fibroblastic proliferation.

These findings attest to the complex interactions between proteins and blood or tissue environments occurring after implantation. With the next century, the real challenge for the biomaterial scientist will be to develop polymers and structures with optimal mechanical and physical properties, biocompatibility, hemocompatibility, and biostability which can be used when constructing devices destined to replace vital organs and other tissues, thus improving and prolonging human beings' lives.
