How to make better blood-repellent surfaces?

Blood-repellent surfaces are needed in medical devices that come in contact with blood. The traditional approach has been the use of antithrombotic surface treatments However, these coatings are prone to eventually wear-off. Superhydrophobic surfaces have been proposed as an alternative solution.
