The Use of the Ex Vivo Chandler Loop Apparatus to Assess the Biocompatibility of Modified Polymeric Blood Conduits Joshua B. Slee1,2, Ivan S. Alferiev1,2, Robert J. Levy1,2, Stanley J. Stachelek1,2 1Division of Cardiology, Department of Pediatrics, The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, 2University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine Blood exposure to polymeric blood conduits initiates the foreign body reaction that has been implicated in clinical complications.
