Innovative fluoropolymer surface modification
Reduced thrombogenicity hydrolysable sealant
Reduced suture hole bleeding
Antibiotic bonding and heparin soaking options
The world’s only gelatin sealed, knitted, fluoropolymer cardiovascular patch.
The gelatin sealed, knitted, Fluoropassiv™ Thin Wall Carotid Patch features an anti-thrombogenic surface modification.
The surface modification process is called “Fluoropassivation”. This is a unique, patented technique where the surface of each polyester fibre is covered with an inert fluoropolymer.
The fluoropolymer molecules bond with the polyester forming an "interpenetrating molecular network" at the interface between the two polymers.
The reduction in thrombogenicity enables the Fluoropassiv™ Patch to achieve comparable performance to that of vein in carotid applications.
