Abstract

For the past 30 years, designing and developing synthetic vascular graft for long term success in bypass applications has been considered a challenging task. Previously, due to lack of compliance, the performance of prostheses has been very poor. In the present work, the performance of textile composite vascular grafts. In order to determine the mechanical properties of the grafts, fluid has been passed at pressures ranging from 0 to 200 mmHg. The hydraulic permeability was assessed at fixed pressure of 12() mmHg. A scanning electron microscope was then used to examine the surface and pore characteristics of grafts. In addition, 8 HVG-1 hybrid grafts were also implanted in the carotid and femoral regions of mongrel dogs for a one year period. In general, all the tests yielded satisfactory results.
