OBJECTIVE New technologies are being explored to meet the clinical need for an 'off-the-shelf' small diameter vascular graft with superior or at least equivalent properties to autologous vessel. The field of nanotechnology and fabrication promises major advances in biomaterial design and wall structure to deliver biomimetic grafts. This review brings(More)
INTRODUCTION Vascular graft materials in clinical use, such as polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) and Dacron, do not endothelialise and have low patency rates. The importance of an endothelial cell layer on the luminal surface of a vascular graft is well-known with surface topography and chemistry playing an important role. The aim of this study was to(More)
INTRODUCTION Vascular grafts, especially in paediatric cases, need to be durable. Common failures such as thrombosis are well documented with research efforts directed towards them. However, there are lesser known causes of graft failure, such as graft calcification, and these also require further research focus. REPORT A paediatric case is described in(More)
