Reduced thrombogenicity of surface-treated Nitinol implants steered by altered protein adsorption

Katharina Gegenschatz-Schmid, Stefano Buzzi, Jonas Grossmann, Bernd Roschitzki, Riccardo Urbanet, Roman Heuberger, Dorothea Glück, Arik Zucker, Martin Ehrbar Blood-contacting medical implants made of Nitinol and other titanium alloys, such as neurovascular flow diverters and peripheral stents, have the disadvantage of being highly thrombogenic. This makes the use of systemic (dual) anti-platelet / anticoagulant therapies inevitable […]

Stop the activation of the blood coagulation cascade by your medical device

Qvanteq AG has developed a surface modification – not a coating – that renders titanium alloy-based implants antithrombogenic. Extensive studies have shown that the modified surface suppresses the activation of proteins of the blood coagulation cascade. The technology can be extended from titanium alloys to virtually any material used in medical devices and is therefore […]
