Abstract

The most serious problem remaining in the development of biomaterials for artificial organs is that artificial surfaces tend to encourage the formation of clots. These aggregates of platelets and leukocytes travel downstream and can lodge in the microcirculation of vital organs, decreasing the oxygen supply of local tissues and killing them. The authors developed a technique employing epifluorescent video microscopy and digital image processing to visualize and quantify the dynamics of blood/surface interactions under conditions of controlled flow.
