Abstract:

Presented herein is a material and method to seal prostheses of specific cardiovascular prostheses - outlet heart canulaes. Microcrystalline chitosan was chosen as the basic constituent for the coating preparation. The coat was deposited by combined dipping and spraying on prostheses composed of synthetic fibres. Testing was carried out to assess the properties of the sealed prostheses: mechanical features, water and blood permeability, fastness and biodegradability. The research was done as part of a complex programme: Polish Artificial Heart 2007-2011.
