Biocompatibility — Clinical Aspects

  • H. -D. Lemke
  • A. Grassmann
  • Jorg Vienken
  • Stanley Shaldon


The clinical aspects of biocompatibility require a clear definition as the title could be misleading. We shall discuss the meaning of biocompatibility in its current usage in haemodialysis therapy and the clinical associations claimed to relate in part or toto from bioincompatible events derived from haemodialysis therapy
