It has been claimed that the neointimal healing of Dacron arterial prostheses can be enhanced by increasing porosity and including both an internal and an external velour layer. To test this, 24 patients received at random either woven (USCI, DeBakey, C. R. Bard, Inc.) or more porous, double-velour, knitted (Microvel, Meadox Medicals, Inc.) Dacron aortobifemoral prostheses. Graft thrombogenicity was measured using autogenous 111In-labeled platelets shortly following surgery and 6 to 9 months… CONTINUE READING
