SummaryIn previous sbudies from our laboratories, it was shown that metals arid alloys which register negative potentials in blood vs. the normal hydrogen electrode (NHE) tend t,o he antithrombogenic, while those with positive potentials are invariably thrombogenic. Of the metals, only the corrodible ones fall in the first group and t'he noble ones in the second. Blood compatible met,als appear to be essential for some types of medical devices. This paper deals with a novel approach of maint,aining an implant…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
