Silver acetate coating promotes early vascularization of Dacron vascular grafts without inducing host tissue inflammation.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Silver acetate is frequently used as an antimicrobial coating of prosthetic vascular grafts. However, the effects of this coating on the early inflammatory and angiogenic host tissue response still remain elusive. Therefore, the aim of the present in vivo study was to analyze the biocompatibility and vascularization of silver acetate-coated and… (More)
