Abstract

This paper reports the connecting mechanism for the artificial blood vessels along with the recent development of the micro implantable dialysis device. Our group has been studying the micro implantable dialysis device, which will drastically improve the quality of life of dialysis patients. We expect to replace the device every couple of years, which will involve surgery. In order to simplify the surgery to reduce the load to the patients, we develop a connector for the artificial vessels, which allows the exchange of the device by low invasive surgery. The connector needs to be designed not to induce blood coagulation. We designed a connecting mechanism that enfolds the artificial vessels to allow blood to contact only to the surface of the artificial vessels. In order to verify effectiveness of the proposed connecting mechanism, we investigated the connector surfaces with SEM after blood circulation tests. Then, we evaluated blood coagulation capacity of the connecting system as well as the set of the connecting system and the micro dialysis device with respect to the activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT). No remarkable increase of blood coagulation at the connecting point was observed after 72 hours of blood circulation tests. Short-term experiments for 120 minutes to evaluate APTT showed a small decrease of APTT, which needs to be further investigated in a longer-term experiments.
