Abstract

In this paper the authors have examined the influence of substrate surface properties on the extent of endothelialization of polymer materials. For this purpose a number of substrates with a wide range of surface tensions have been employed. The authors also have investigated the interaction of suspensions of granulocytes (PMNs) and erythrocytes (RBCs) from homologous species with the endothelialized surfaces. This part of the study was undertaken to evaluate whether the adherent endothelial cells behaved in a manner consistent with the natural intima and to determine the influence (if any) of the underlying substrate material on PMN and RBC adhesion.
