BACKGROUND A prospective randomized multicenter trial was performed to compare knitted gelatin-coated Dacron bifurcation grafts, knitted collagen-coated Dacron grafts, and stretch polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) grafts. METHODS Between 1991 and 1998, 315 elective patients were randomized by age, gender, diabetes, runoff, indication (aneurysm, aortoiliac occlusive disease), and nicotine consumption at 3 centers of vascular surgery in Austria. The patients received gelatin-coated Dacron (GEL-D… CONTINUE READING
