Heparin coated vascular prostheses
VascuGraft® FLOW is a vascular prosthesis made of expanded Polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) with a heparin coated surface. The prosthesis comprises a single-layer prosthesis body with a thin ePTFE mantle on its exterior surface. The lumen surface of the VascuGraft® FLOW prosthesis is coated with highmolecular heparin (porcine mucosa).
The prosthesis is available in two wall thicknesses, “thin wall” and “standard wall”. It is also available with a removable external spiral Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) reinforcement for sections in which the risk of compression and kinking is high (reconstructions that traverse a joint or extraanatomical reconstructions).
Four stickers for patient documentation are enclosed in the packaging.
The VascuGraft® FLOW ePTFE vascular graft is indicated in cases of arterial reconstruction, primarily in the peripheral vascular region. It can also be used in extraanatomical reconstructions – femorofemoral and axillofemoral.
Standardwall VascuGraft® FLOW prosthesis are also indicated for use as arteriovenous shunt prosthesis in haemodialysis.
