20(a) and (c)). 20 SEM images of polyurethane samples after 3 month implantation. (a) Pellethane® 80A; (b) Pellethane® 55D; (c) polyurethane made of PDMS polyol (×50 magnification); (d) polyurethane made of PDMS polyol (×150 magnification). Reprinted with permission from Ref. [80]. 6 Protein adsorption test When a medical device is in contact with body fluid such as blood, the first thing that occurs on the surface is protein adsorption [96–98]. Proteins in solution trying to minimize the total surface energy is the thermodynamic driving force of protein adsorption on solid surfaces.

XPS is a crucial technique for confirming the surface chemical composition of these modifications. For example, Ishihara et al. synthesized a series of methacrylate copolymers with a phosphoryl choline moiety. These polymers were coated on a Pellethane® film to reduce platelet adhesion on blood contact [47]. XPS indicated the chemical composition before and after the coating process. 10) polymer has carbon and oxygen bonds similar to those of the substrate Pellethane® TPU. Nitrogen of urethane bonds appears (401 eV) in samples both before and after coating.

2 Trackability measurement When a medical prosthesis such as a catheter, guide wire, angioplasty balloon, or stent is inserted to a blood vessel, external force is needed to advance the prosthesis into the right position. 2 Modified COF device for a catheter. (a) A, tested catheter; B, a vessel filled with distilled water; C, polymer element pressing down the catheter, rigidly connected, via rod E, with forcemeter F; D, an exchangeable counterface; G, DC motor coiling the strand H; (b) I = N/T; T, friction force; N, normal force, which is the difference of a force of gravity Q and a buoyancy W.
