Patches are now used frequently in vascular and cardial reconstructions, e.g. following endoarteriectomy of the carotid artery, both as deep and aortic prostheses, and in septum defects.
Fluoro-Tex cardiovascular patches are predestined for these indications. Our modern production method produces products with the following properties:
- Unique Bipore design of the microporous structure with two different fibril lengths for low thrombogenicity
- FEP-net between two ePTFE layers for enhanced suture retention
- Wallthickness of 0.6mm for excellent handling and pliable suture behaviour
- Proven safety and effectiveness for the repair of vascular defects, e.g. after endarterectomy of the carotid artery, as profunda and aortic plastic or septum defects.
