Future research on and development of intravascular stents, stent grafts, and other implantable devices will be aimed largely at improving their blood and tissue biocompatibility. Most of the modifications resulting from this research and development will alter the surface properties we currently understand: surface energy or 'wetability,' electrical surface charge, surface texture, and surface chemistry. However, as knowledge of the physical, chemical, and biological properties of bioprosthetic surface materials expands, new areas for exploration will develop, increasing the opportunities for improvement.
