Abstract

Hydroxylated and C16 acylated silicone rubber films were prepared with enhanced albumin binding. Lee-White clotting times were significantly increased for both treatments. Hydroxylation significantly reduced C5a production. Hydroxylated silicone rubber femoral vein catheters in canines reduced 111In-labeled platelet activity, compared with bilateral silicone rubber catheter controls. The results suggest hydroxylated silicone rubber films have enhanced biocompatibility.
