Currently there is no rapid, simple test from which one can predict the long-term biocompatibility of implanted cardiovascular biomaterials. The purpose of the study reported here was to evaluate the ability of certain short-term tests of blood-material compatibility to predict the nature of the responses of the host and material following long-term implantation of 5 biomaterials.
