This study explores graft geometry and hemodynamics in a reproducible canine arteriovenous loop graft model of intimal-medial hyperplasia. Untapered 6 mm diameter polytetrafluoroethylene grafts (n = 10) were paired with 4 to 7 mm taper (n = 5) or 7 to 4 mm taper (n = 5) grafts for a 12-week period. Several hemodynamic variables were assessed at multiple locations, and venous intimal-medial thickness was measured at locations corresponding to the hemodynamic measurements. Color Doppler imaging… CONTINUE READING
