Surface modifying coatings reviewed for the experimental setting and clinical applications include heparin surface coating, end-point attached heparin, biomembrane mimicry, polymeric phospholipids, and phosphorylcholine. The main findings for the various applications and surface modifications are described, referenced, and illustrated.
