Objectives. To study bioinertness of new nanosized carbon-containing in compounds in experiment.
Methods. The pulsed vacuum arc method was used to deposite the coating of nitinol wire. Nitinol wire stents were implanted in the parenchymal organs (kidney and liver) and in the choledoch of sexually mature Wistar rats. The animals were taken out of the experiment on the 14th and 30th day after implantation. The thickness of developing reactive tissue areas was measured; the cytoarchitectonics around the implants was evaluated.
Results. In the cases of implantation in the parenchymal organs the quantitative and qualitative characteristics depended on the implantation site have been defined. Inflammatory changes around implants in the liver proved to be 1,5-2 fold more intensive than in the kidneys the same period of observation. Qualitative analysis of cytoarchitectonics around the implants in different groups has not revealed statistically significant differences depending on the implant material. The quantitative assessment of inflammatory infiltration in the group with nanostructured coating based on amorphous carbon matrix with including of silver nanoscale clusters was less intense regardless of the implantation site. Implantation of new carbon nanoscale materials into the rat choledoch lumen has not followed by necrobiotic changes and perforation of its wall; no mortality was observed in the study groups. The reaction of the extrahepatic biliary tract to the introduction of implant such homologous when it implanted in parenchymal organs.
Conclusion. The materials being developed for implantation showed no cytotoxicity. The best indicators of bioinertness were registered in the group of implants with nanostructural coating based on amorphous carbon matrix with inclusions of nanoscale clusters of silver. This result can be explained by the inertia of the carbon to the tissues and by antiproliferative properties of silver.
